Oil spill may still be threat to coast of Louisiana

Posted on October 7th, 2010 No Comments

Oil from the Deepwater Horizon explosion in the Gulf of Mexico still threatens the interior wetlands of Louisiana and the wildlife that lives in the area, according to officials in Louisiana.

The construction of sand berms along 40 miles of the coast were done in order to keep the oil out but the state has put hold on the project to finish the 101 mile coast due to the lack of a permanent permit.

A letter from the Director of the Office of Coastal Protection and Restoration said that the hold on the construction of the berms is irresponsible because oil is still found in certain locations and not having a barrier is putting natural resources at risk.
