Clean-up operations are underway after a major oil pipeline owned by Sunoco Logistics Partners (SXL -0.6%) leaked hundreds of barrels of crude oil into a nature preserve next to the Great Miami River in Ohio.

Crews vacuumed oil that had leaked from the Mid-Valley pipeline into a wetland area of the Oak Glen Nature Preserve north of Cincinnati; the spill does not appear to have reached the river.

Sunoco says the 240-barrel spill has been contained.
