A Chevron spokesman says very little of the 33,000 gallons of oil that spilled into a Salt Lake City creek in June remains in the area.

Spokesman Dan Johnson tells the Desert News for a story published Saturday that crews have identified and removed most of the visible oil at Red Butte Creek, and "hand-washing" operations have ceased.

Johnson says the bulk of the cleanup effort has focused on the actual spill site, where 1,250 tons of oil-stained soil have been removed.

Plans also call for re-contouring the ground where the oil seeped from a 10-inch diameter pipe on June 11 spill.
