Active Cleanup Complete from Delaware Bay Oil Spill

Monday, May 15, 2006
On May 11, the Unified Command determined that responders have achieved pre-established oil spill clean up standards, and that active cleanup measures are complete. Although the active cleanup has been completed, a monitoring plan has been implemented in the event that any further oil is sighted. The Unified Command includes the Coast Guard, environmental representatives from Delaware, New Jersey and The O'Brien's Group. The spill, which was reported to the Coast Guard by crewmen from a tug boat on April 25th, impacted Delaware shorelines from the Leipsic River south to the Mispillion River and caused New Jersey to close over 70,000 acres of oyster beds for one week as a preventive measure. A total of 22 birds and one turtle were reported to have been impacted by the spill. None of the wildlife affected died as a result of the spill. The cause of the spill is under investigation, however, the responsible vessel has been identified by the Coast Guard as the Bermuda Islander.
