The Coast Guard immediately responded to the location to conduct an investigation and locate the source of the discharge. The initial investigation did not reveal a source or responsible party. The Coast Guard accessed the Federal Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund and hired Patriot Environmental Services to conduct the $50,000 clean up operation. Biologists from OSPR are monitoring the area for any potential environmental impact to fish and wildlife. As of yet there is no reported impact to fish or wildlife. The Coast Guard and OSPR investigation into the source of the discharge continues.
