Tanker Truck sitting in the Colorado by Parchute

Does anyone now why the involved do not make removeal a priority?It has been there for several weeks a local said. Completely submerged till now.
Seems that contaminating the river would be a priority.

I would also find this hard to believe. Even if empty I would assume the removal would be a priority.

I'm trying to figuire how you'd go about it. I know a little about cranes and that's a big load a long way from anything. How would you get it out?

Thank goodness it was a tanker filled with water, and that it seems like the fuel tank was not punctured. Hopefully they will make some sort of effort to empty the fuel tank before dragging it out. Not sure how they could accomplish that though.

You're kidding right? The driver of what? I've rigged and recovered a few heavy vehicles. I don't think that's gonna work.
