 Texas City “Y” Oil Spill Incident Update

Response Efforts Continue to Minimize Impact of Spill
 

(Galveston, TX) March 24, 2014 – The primary concern still remains the safety of responders and the protection of the environment. To ensure the safety of response workers in the area, and to prevent the spread of oil into other areas of the channel and Galveston Bay, safety zones have been established, which restricts vessel traffic in impacted waters.

The Bolivar ferry remains closed with the exception of EMS transit. The public can contact the Ferry Office for status updates at (409) 795-2230. The ferry is key and officials are working diligently to get it reopened as soon as possible.  

A claims number has been established for persons or businesses that may have questions in regard to impact by the incident. The number is (855) 276-1275.

If you encounter wildlife that has been in contact with oil, please contact the Joint Incident Command Center at (713) 435-1505. They will dispatch assistance and have wildlife rehabilitation volunteers available to assist.

Please note that Galveston. County Office of Emergency Management has closed the ship channel and Seawolf Park to fishing.

Workers were mobilized to the East beach areas this morning to clean the oil that has impacted that area. Air monitoring continues to ensure the safety of workers and others in the area.
 
The Unified Command and Joint Information Center for the Texas City "Y" Response has been relocated to the Charles T. Doyle Convention Center in Texas City.

For more information contact the response joint information center at (713) 435-1505.

To report wild life affected call the Texas Parks and Wildlife toll free number 888-384-2000.
