Curious...after they've recovered all the free oil they can, then they will go in and remove the contaminated soil...Just where are they putting all of this contaminated soil???? Thanx Evelyn.

This happens EVERY DAY! They do not have to report it to the public but to an agency that is there to help OIL and not the people or the environment.
