Due to the light oil impact experienced in Walton County, Emergency Management in conjunction with BP and cleanup contractors, are working through the Branch command center to scale back the number of cleanup workers located on the beach. Chief of Emergency Management, Captain Mike Barker met with contracting crew supervisors late last week and is working with the supervisors to reduce the number of cleanup workers on the beach. Captain Barker, along with the Branch command center is working to create a better, more efficient scaleable system for beach cleanup.
“We know the number of workers present on the beach needs to be reduced and we are working to resolve the issue. However we want to ensure we can ramp back up if the impact of oil starts to increase,” Barker said.
Today the number of cleanup workers was around 400 which is a large reduction from the two thousand present previously.
Beach cleanup night operations have also been ceased due to the light impact being experienced.
