Dickinson Bayou Spill

January 22, 2018 - 9:30am

Clean up continues on Dickinson Bayou.  Again, significant progress was made over night.  Coast Guard has opened Dickinson Bayou to water traffic.  However, the Dickinson Bayou Boat Ramp will remain closed until further notice, due to the continued cleanup operations.  

The spill product has been isolated to one small area.   While cleanup will continue on the water, any boat traffic is advised to move at slow speeds in the area of work crews.  

Cleanup is estimated to be completed by the end of the day (Monday).   Saturation booms will remain in place for the next several days to collect any residual product that may flush out from rocks, brush, etc., along the shoreline.   Crews will inspect those booms over the next several days. 

Calumet Refining is currently conducting an internal investigation, while Texas General Land Office and US Coast Guard are conducting state and federal investigations.  

Next update will be issued at 4:00 pm this afternoon.
