Project Description

While great efforts have been made to prevent large oil slick and asphalt-like substances from entering into the Louisiana coastal water system, it is the dispersed oil and dispersant residual that may get into the estuaries and present an even greater and long term threat to the Louisiana coastal ecosystem. Though the federal government has ordered BP to limit the dispersant usage, it is estimated that more than two million gallons, a record high amount of dispersants, has been used [1].
