There was no obvious source for the oil, such as a buried tank or drums. Incident command feels they were able to excavate the whole area that was contaminated and that no more oil exists in that particular location.

The location is about 2 miles west of Ediz Hook at Port Angeles on the beach at the base of the slope where the City is constructing a sea wall.
A project to determine the source and extent of the oil is
being cooperatively managed by Ecology, City of Port Angeles,
Port Angeles Fire Department, and Glaicer Construction. It is
also being coordinated with the USCG Seattle Sector.
Original excavation on October 5, a few hours after the oil was discovered. Photo taken by Doug Stolz with Department of Ecology.
