BP Contract Worker "Trenches Dug To Bury Oil On Beaches", pcolagregg, October 8, 2010:
From a recently released BP Contract Worker who worked from Panama City to the Florida Alabama Line.
(at 6:50 in)
We were on the beach... If the water hit your shoe you had to be contaminated... that means... your clothes were thrown away... you didn't come back to the beach... even though you were walking around in tar balls galore... but yet the water touching was the clincher... don't get touched by the water or you're not here anymore.
