I ran into the Navy Marine Services person today and asked about what I thought were oil balls on the beach. He said BP analyzed them and said they were entirely organic, with no oil in them. Samples have been taken and are being processed by the UWF lab. The results will be available in about a week.
If there is any oil in them, BP will be responsible for cleaning them up, but I believe he said there would be a clean up either way.
I was wondering about this – thought you might want to know, too.
