March 29, 2022: Clean-up Efforts Continue for Oswego Harbor Oil Spill

A ruptured underground pipe in Oswego Harbor caused a large oil spill earlier this month. Authorities are still in the process of cleaning up the area. The pipeline belongs to the Oswego Harbor Power Plant. The Coast Guard and State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) have deployed booms to contain the spill and special sponges to remove any visible traces of the oil. Officials have not stated how much oil actually spilled into the harbor.
Mayor Barlow said “Clean water in Oswego Harbor and Lake Ontario is critically important to our residents and wildlife. We will do our part to ensure that the oil spread is limited and as much of the fuel that can be captured is captured.”
