Along the South Texas coast several new
Oil and Bilge Water Recovery Units have been put in place by the Pollution Prevention Partnership, Office
of Community Outreach at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. In addition to Conn Brown Harbor, other recovery units were placed at
the Fulton Marina, the Port Aransas Marina and the Corpus Christi
Organizers estimate the units will capture 100,000 gallons plus of oily water and around 10,000
gallons of waste engine oil annually.
The Gulf of Mexico Foundation salutes community efforts like these
aimed at making the Gulf cleaner and healthier. (Click on the small photos at left to enlarge).
