A recent oil spill in the Houston Ship Channel has environmental groups and cleanup crews scrambling to contain the damage and help the local wildlife recover. The spill occurred when a barge carrying 900,000 gallons oil collided with a ship. Officials estimated that around 170,000 gallons of tar-like oil could have seeped out into the waters south of Houston. Containment was the number one priority. Once the leak was plugged, the cleanup crews got busy. While teams took care of the water, others took care of the wildlife. Several sandpipers, gulls and other birds that got trapped with the muck were picked up by trained specialists and given a thorough cleaning.
“We’ll be here until the last bird has been recovered,” said Richard Arnhart, with the Texas General Land Office’s oil spill prevention division. “You are going to have various stages of oiled wildlife.”
An oil spill is the kind of cleanup that is labor intensive. It also means the cleanup crews themselves are going to get dirty. Hopefully, you won’t ever have to deal with that level of cleanup at your home. That doesn’t mean you can’t “go deep” when it comes to spring cleaning.
