Mississippi Mystery: If officials find submerged oil now, it counts as oil… Unlike last time (VIDEO)

How much does BP owe for damaging natural resources?, WLOX, November 11, 2010:

“We started with shoreline assessment in mid-July. And that ran for about a month and a half. And that was teams going up and down the shore along the coast and assessing them for damage,” said Nick Gatian, an environmental administrator with DEQ. …

This damage assessment work is quite similar to the earlier oil response teams that hit the water, with one big exception.

“With the damage assessment, a positive hit is any speck of oil shows up on those pom poms. If you put out a 20 foot length of chain and one pom pom comes up with one piece that has a speck of oil on it, for damage assessment that’s a positive hit,” Gatian explains.
