BP reneges on deal to rebuild oyster beds, repair wetlands, Louisiana officials say~Mark Schleifstein
~Barham said the state also is facing another major disagreement with BP over the acceptability of the cleanup of the Elmer's Island beach in southernmost Lafourche Parish. "BP a couple of weeks ago said they're now looking to natural processes to finish the degradation of oil," he said. "But at Elmer's Island refuge, there are new tar balls coming ashore. Apparently, a mat of oil is in the subtidal zone just offshore and now it's coagulating again and creating a fresh supply of oil." He said that LSU toxicologist Ralph Portier conducted tests on subsurface sand samples from the beach area and found troubling concentrations of carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, including benzene, xylene and toluene. "Cleaning the surface did not get rid of them," Barham said of the oil spill response cleanup efforts on the beach. "Before we can open that refuge and let little kids out there with buckets and shovels to build sand castles, we don't want them turning up PAHs. We want to know what their plan is to deal with it."
