Portland Harbor Prepares for Potential Oil Spill

Posted on Apr 12, 2010

Being the second-busiest oil port on the East Coast is not without its hazards.  To prepare for a possible oil spil in Portland Harbor, the Coast Guard is planning a large-scale oil spill exercise off the coast of Maine in spring 2010.  Casco Baykeeper Joe Payne commented on this planned “Spill of National Significance” drill at a recent news conference.
