BP contractors were busy last night to cover up the black oil deposit on Pensacola Beach with sand. Heavy machinery was used throughout the night to cover the thick oil spill with a thin layer of sand and crews were still working by daylight to finish the job.
The local contractors confirmed that they were told by BP to just cover up the large oil patch on Pensacola Beach with sand and then proceed during the day to pick up small pieces along the surf line with a smaller crew.
The combination of oil and Corexit now lies buried under sand and is mixed together, never to be recovered or cleaned up again. The toxic waste will seep through the soil through natural rainfall and will further contaminate the environment.
