Oil sheen at Pleasure Island yacht club

An estimated 30 gallons of crude oil condensate has been recovered at the Pleasure Island Yacht Club and a likely source has been identified pending further investigation.

The Coast Guard and Texas General Land Office responded last Wednesday to a report of an oil sheen at the Pleasure Island Yacht Club.

A containment boom has been set up at the Yacht Club and if you look closely you can see a light sheen of oil sitting on top of the water.

The Coast Guard and TGLO are currently conducting a joint investigation into the cause of the incident and tracking down all possible sources. Any appearance of oil is taken very seriously by authorities.
Booming strategies have been established to protect the marina and private property.

The boom will stay in place until the source has been secured and cleanup is completed.
