BP oil spill cleanup ends, but MDEQ still monitoring beaches

GULF OF MEXICO — The Gulf Coast Incident Management Team and the U.S. Coast Guard are transitioning the Deepwater Horizon oil spill response back to the pre-spill National Response Center system, according to a release from the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ).

“While the Coast Guard and the Gulf States have decided that it’s time to move toward scaling back the response, there will continue to be response efforts and clean up for oil that is found. In addition, if oil is found to be MC252 oil, BP will be held accountable for the cleanup,” said Trudy Fisher, MDEQ executive director.

The National Response Center is the sole national point of contact for reporting all oil, chemical, radiological, biological and etiological discharges into the environment anywhere in the United States and its territories. The reported information is passed to a local Coast Guardsman who investigates the report and takes appropriate action.
