Local official: We're finding oil on seafloor, but no one will clean it up -- Told just let mother nature handle it (VIDEO)


Oyster Fest is a success, but fishermen fear uncertain future, Fox8 New Orleans, October 16, 2010:

While the parish transitions from oil response to a more long-term restoration plan, Parish President Craig Taffaro said the parish's challenge is to make sure cleanup where it's needed is still relevant.  "We're running into some resistance in the sense that we're getting a lot of feedback to just let mother nature handle the oil that's there, and not really a whole lot of attention to the oil that may be on the water bottom that we're finding as we stir sections on the water bottom up," said Taffaro.
