Shows Ecology spill responder John Hanson
and an engineering contractor inspecting the sight for residual oil
after excavation/restoration work that went into the early morning hours
on October 12.
Shows the release area after
excavation of 170 yards of contaminated soils and replacement with “toe
anchor” rock. The area was left open to allow for recovery of any
residual oil that may float to the surface of the water table. It will
be covered when completely clean.
