MONTGOMERY, W.Va. (AP) - CSX plans to discuss the cleanup of an oil-train derailment at a public information meeting this month in Glen Ferris.

The Charleston Daily Mail (https://bit.ly/1D0mthB ) says the meeting is scheduled for July 21 at the Glen Ferris Inn.

Investigators haven’t determined what caused 27 of the train’s 109 cars to derail during a Feb. 16 snowstorm in Mount Carbon.

Cleanup remains in a short-term phase focusing on removing crude oil at the site and preventing potential oil sheens on the Kanawha River.

Under a March consent order with Environmental Protection Agency, the railroad agreed to a long-term plan for cleaning up and restoring the area around the derailment.

The public can inspect documents pertaining to the cleanup at Montgomery City Hall. The documents are on a CD-ROM.
