GALVESTON — Oil spill cleanup crews began shifting much of their attention to sensitive areas on the east end of Galveston. 

Responders have created a staging area at Seawolf Park to respond to oil at the park and areas such as the Big Reef Nature Preserve and the East End Lagoon.

Glad they're focusing on this area. I wonder if there will be any attempt to clean the beachfront rock groins. Seems like it might be too hard.

Looks like bank fishing in G-Town might require a separate pair of shoes for years to come...

Bio-remediation, or 'oil eating bugs' is always an option.
Or, wait a few weeks, and all will be gone naturally.
The only thing left will be the oily slick attorneys...

Jogging on the West End today, was surprised to see oil on Bermuda beach, as the tide was receding, within a 300 yard stretch East of Pabst Rd entrance. Not huge patches or anything, but definitely there.
