UPDATE: No evidence of leaks had been found during a survey by a remote vehicle and divers, the Oregon DEQ said.

"As of midday Friday, responders had identified 18 drums so far, both intact and rusted out, using a remotely operated vehicle. One drum has the “2,4-D or 2,4,5-T” label and appears to be intact. There’s no evidence of any leaking drums at this time," according to DEQ.

In an update posted Friday, DEQ said:

Divers are now working at around 90-120 feet, doing detailed assessments of the drums. Their top priority is doing visual and tactile assessment on drums that appear to be intact.

Responders will continue the assessment, and if conditions allow, could begin removing the highest priority drums as early as tomorrow.

The labels on the drums appear to be commercial.
