Buzzards Bay Spill Settlement Money Still Flowing
September 26, 2011
CapeCodOnline: The effects of a 2003 oil barge spill are less visible in Buzzards Bay than in years past, but state officials are still looking to improve the bay further using $6 million in settlement money.
At a sparsely attended meeting Wednesday (September 21) at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, members of the Natural Resources Damages Trustee Council outlined the possibilities for restoration in the bay and kicked off the public comment process.
The trustee council is made up of Massachusetts and Rhode Island environmental officials.
