Buzzards Bay Oil Spill Cleanup Status Maps for May 8
Selected May 8, 2003 Cleanup Status MapsNote that many areas with light to medium oiling after the spill are now designated "clean" after beach cleaning efforts as of the date of these maps. Some areas were re-oiled subsequently. "Clean" on the maps refers only to the immediate response endpoints, not that there is no visible evidence of oil. The coast guard is working on a set of definitions to better explain status maps.
On the maps, green is either clean or unoiled, yellow is very light oiling, orange is light, purple is medium, and black is heavy.
