PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A paddleboat moored in the Oahe Downstream Recreation Area Marina leaked fuel oil and diesel when water came over the back of the boat and sunk its lower end into the shallows near the shore.

Authorities say only a small amount of an oil-diesel mix leaked into the water on Friday, and they don’t believe any of it drifted out of the marina. The Pierre Fire Department deployed booms at the scene to contain and collect the mix.

The Capital Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2qhjeH7 ) that a damage estimate to the boat owned by Steamboat Inc. wasn’t immediately available.
