Ivor van Heerden's BP sub-contractor's plan for beach cleaning flawed?
~BP is again seeking permission to use a technique called “surf washing” to finish cleaning the sand at Grand Isle. The permit is pending through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is similar to one BP withdrew in July from the agency.
In that (emergency) request, BP had asked to use “surf washing” — basically pushing oil-stained sand back into the surf for reworking — at East Grand Terre.
A request for comment from BP made with Deepwater Horizon Incident Joint Information Center was not returned by Friday afternoon. In a previous interview about the Grand Terre permit request, Edward Owens, principal with Polaris Applied Sciences Inc. of Bainbridge Island, Wash., and the shoreline response technical advisor for BP, said the technique has been used in many other places.

~Editilla @lizzieohreally are they adding these "donations" to the Cost of their so called "Oil Spill Response"? I say yea and verily. #bppr #oilspill
~ lizzieohreally @Editilla no they tally direct cleanup expenses differently.
~ Editilla @lizzieohreally Do you have that information link or documentation? Thanks yous.
~ Editilla @lizzieohreally Thanks. I'm getting at the Total Alleged Costs. I believe they do list these 10+ Million$ "contributions" towards taxes.
~ Editilla WE want an Accounting of #BP Alleged Costs? http://bit.ly/cYQmSm http://bit.ly/b9xcaF http://bit.ly/bZqDZZ #bppr #oilspill #CPA #Gulf #nola

Tropical Storm Hermine hit the Mexican coast 40 miles south of the Texas border at 9:30 pm EDT last night, with 60 mph sustained winds. Top winds observed in Texas from the storm were 50 mph with gusts to 59 mph at Port Isabel near the Mexican border, and winds at Brownsville hit 45 mph, gusting to 69 mph. Harlingen had the highest gust observed from Hermine, 72 mph, and local storm reports indicate that half of the city lost power and a roof caved in on an apartment complex, with no injuries.
