  • ESG says latest oil spill unacceptable 11th May 2021

    Fresh Oil Spill Unacceptable


    The ESG was yesterday alerted to yet another oil slick off our coastline, which was later traced to have landed at three of our beaches including Rosia, Camp and Little Bay.

    The thick black sludge was present in worrying levels at Rosia Bay and reports were made with the Department of the Environment responding promptly to establish immediate clean up operations with the help from Brightside.

    This oil spill could have originated elsewhere and is the subject of yet another investigation following the spill seen within our harbour waters over the weekend.

    Large or small these spills are becoming all too frequent and are damaging our natural environment and are unacceptable. The Port is called upon to fully apply its resources to ensure standards are being followed and identify and fine polluters.

    The ESG thanks all those who responded late last night to begin clean up operations that continue today.
