Oil Spill News

DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. -- BP finished pumping fresh cement into its blown-out oil well Thursday, virtually assuring there is no longer a chance of oil leaking into the environment, according to company and federal officials.

Locally, officials have started removing boom from the water and are planning to further scale back cleanup operations as the amount of visible oil at sea and on shore has been reduced to nearly nothing following the capping of the well three weeks ago.
