Oil Spill Prevention - Protect Your Property
The potential damages from the oil spill tragedy in the gulf could be much larger than originally expected. As the spill continues to spread many coast lines areas are concerned how this will affect gulf coast states. While BP, government and environmental agencies are doing everything they can, many local businesses and homeowners are wondering what they can do to protect themselves.
So what can you do to protect yourselves and your property?
Oil Spill Supplies: Absorbent booms, sorbent pads, rolls & oil spill kits
Oil spill supplies such as Absorbent booms, pads and rolls are used to soak up the oil before it reaches the shoreline. Place the absorbent booms, oil only pads and rolls between the containment boom and your property to absorb the oil off the water. These absorbents are specifically designed to selectively absorb only oil and not water.

Once the oil spill absorbents are fully saturated with petroleum, spill cleanup pads, rolls and absorbent booms must be deposed of and replaced with new ones. Be sure to check with local regulations regarding proper disposal of used absorbents and other oil spill cleanup supplies. Using overpack containers such as our PAK167 and our PAK197 are large enough to safely contain your used absorbents and will help you comply with DOT 49 CFR 173.3 (c) EPA, SPCC and NPDES regulations. For smaller, easy to manange labpacks try our 30 gallon overpack PAK135 or our 20 gallon container PAK123.
If and when the oil spill does reach the shoreline, the oil can affect wildlife; such as seabirds and sea others, the land; rocks, soil and plants as well as personal property and local businesses.
