Update: Controlled burn scheduled to begin

NEW ORLEANS – The response to British Petroleum/Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon incident continues as responders have scheduled a controlled, on-location burn to begin at 10 a.m. CDT today—a strategy designed to minimize environmental risks by removing large quantities of oil in the Gulf of Mexico following the April 20 explosion.  

Part of a coordinated response combining tactics deployed above water, below water, dozens of miles offshore, as well as closer to coastal areas, today’s controlled burn will rapidly remove oil from the open water in an effort to protect shoreline and marine and other wildlife.

Workboats will consolidate oil into a fire resistant boom approximately 500 feet long. This oil will then be towed to a more remote area, where it will be ignited and burned in a controlled manner. The plan calls for small, controlled burns of several thousand gallons of oil lasting approximately one hour each.

No populated areas are expected to be affected by the controlled burn operations and there are no anticipated impacts to marine mammals and sea turtles. In order to ensure safety, the Environmental Protection Agency will continuously monitor air quality and burning will be halted if safety standards cannot be maintained.

The vast majority of this slick will be both addressed through natural means and through use of chemical dispersants. Today’s burn will not affect other ongoing response activities, such as on-water skimming, dispersant application, and subsurface wellhead intervention operations. Preparations are also underway in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Alabama to set up a protective boom to minimize shoreline impact.  

These efforts are happening concurrently with BP/Transocean’s so far unsuccessful efforts to stop the crude that is still leaking from the well. BP is the responsible party due to the fact that they own the oil that was leaking from their well.

Emphasizing the importance of continued vigilance and interagency coordination in the response to BP/Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar yesterday announced the next steps for the investigation that is underway to determine the causes of the explosion, which left 11 workers missing, three critically injured, and an ongoing oil spill that the responsible party and federal agencies are working to contain and clean up.

Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change Carol Browner, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, Secretary Napolitano, U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Thad Allen, Secretary Salazar and DOI Deputy Secretary David Hayes also held meetings yesterday with British Petroleum, the responsible party in the oil spill, to discuss the response effort.

A coordinated response continues by federal, state and local partners while the responsible private sector parties work to stop the flow of oil and minimize its environmental impact. Approximately 1,000 total personnel are currently deployed and have used approximately 43,000 gallons of oil dispersant so far. Approximately 260,000 gallons of oily water have been collected. Nearly 50 vessels—including 16 skimming boats, four storage barges, 11 support vessels—and multiple aircraft are conducting containment and cleanup operations in the area.

A Web site has been established where photos, press releases and fact sheets are available at www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com. A toll free number has been established to report oiled or injured wildlife. To report affected wildlife, call (866) 557-1401. Individuals are urged not to attempt to help injured or oiled animals, but to report any sightings to the toll free number.

Ayers Rock is probably the most popular option for campervan tourists coming to this region, but an alternative that is closer to Alice and every bit as rewarding for a self drive excursion is the West Macdonnell National Park.

It has become common knowledge that the toys we give our children to play with as a child can assist their learning experience. It can be argued that every single toy we provide our child helps them in some way to develop their skills and personality and is therefore 'educational'

There are many scams when it comes to the male enhancement industry. While there are some male enhancement pills that can make a difference, the majority of these products are standing on very shaky grounds.

¿En primer lugar, pedir una actualización al fabricante del dispositivo: cuando estará disponible un parche y se cubrirá? También puede considerar cambiar la configuración de tus aplicaciones Android que utilizan MMS, mensajería como Hangouts. Las Naciones Unidas y haga clic en "automáticamente recuperar MMS mensajes". Mientras tanto, considere el uso de Snapchat o WhatsApp cambiar clips, GIFs y todo eso.
