  • Coast Guard now responsible for investigating any oil on beaches

    BP's Gulf oil spill cleanup is nearing the end. By mid-June, company officials say the National Response Center will be the point of contact for reporting all oil, chemical, radiological, biological and etiological discharges into the environment.
