While working on barrier island restoration project, a marsh excavator struck a pipeline on Sept. 5, causing more than 5,200 gallons of oil to leak out near Bay Long. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, 155 personnel, 25 boats, 7 skimmers, and more than 12,000 feet of hardboom were deployed to contain and recover the product.
