Representatives from the towns of Riverhead and Southold inspected the beach with members of the unified command here today also.

Over 120 workers from Miller Environmental Group responded to the spill at the height of operations utilizing backhoes, front loaders and other heavy equipment. Although cleanup operations have been concluded, the Coast Guard and NYSDEC will continue to monitor the site. The cause of the spill is under investigation. Oil sightings in the area should be reported to the Coast Guard or NYSDEC.
