Unified Command Continues Response to Tar Balls Near Long Branch

Cleanup crews have continued to monitor the impacted New Jersey beaches over the weekend, and no new pollution has been observed.

Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod conducted an overflight of Lower New York Harbor to Asbury Park, New Jersey, reporting no observed sightings of sheen or debris.

Manual cleanup efforts have been effective in removing recoverable tar balls and debris. To date, response crews have removed approximately 1,000 pounds of tar balls and oiled debris from impacted beaches.

I’ve had my dream job of waking up with all the great listeners and members of Brookdale Public Radio since January 3, 2005. Prior to this job, I began my career in radio at NJ 101.5 FM as a producer. From there, I took time off from radio to do other things. (including becoming a mom!)
