Local, state and national agencies are responding to an oil-related incident in Jefferson Parish over the weekend.
Pink sludge was found in the 17th Street Canal and it’s not yet public knowledge how it got there.
The Coast Guard is overseeing the cleanup, which is ongoing. It says 900 gallons of waste lubricant came from Delta Petroleum. The company’s website says it blends and packs lubricants and oils.
A company spokesman says it notified state police, the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality and the East Jefferson Levee District on Sunday.
