Houston Channel Oil Spill Leaves Big Mess

Posted March 28, 2014

After a major ship collision in the Houston Channel, the Gulf is once again facing a major oil spill that could have a profound effect on local wildlife, and the economy, as officials struggle to determine the extent of the spill and start cleanup efforts. Tragically, shorebirds are starting to ramp up their migration as the seasons turn, so devastation from this spill could be particularly widespread. This is a cause for grave concern among wildlife officials, who want to ensure the health and safety of humans and animals alike in the area.

In addition to stressing the environment and economy, spills like this one also put pressure on the housing market as cleanup contractors and officials descend on the region to get to work. Houston-area contractors and others may have a busy time ahead of them.
