Leak at M&H will have 'mild effects' on ground water

According to a spokesperson for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, the MPCA will have to conduct ground water samplings over the next three to four months in order to determine the exact extent of how much gas leaked and how far it has traveled in the ground. E85 is an ethanol and petroleum gas mixture that's used in some vehicles.
