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. The command center would like to create a better, more efficient system for beach cleanup.

“The reorganized cleanup structure will have the capability of ramping back up if the need arises, and beach cleanup personnel will be right sized for the current level of shoreline impact,” said an emergency management official.
“We are scaling operations to create efficiencies and flexibility to accommodate beach goers and to expand the force should the need be presented.”
Night beach cleanup operations have also been ceased due to the light impact being experienced.
Walton County Emergency Management and BP officials are working to create a list of guidelines to be distributed to crew supervisors.
The guidelines will serve as ground rules for cooperation on Walton County beaches. They will also serve as a tool to help enhance consideration of beach goers, and to improve respect for our environment.
