BLIGH ISLAND OIL SPILL INCIDENT INFO

There is an active incident related to a historic wreck in the Zuciarte Channel near Bligh Island (PFMA 25-15) in Nootka Sound.  There is a slow release of oil assumed to be Bunker C, which is more persistent than diesel as only 5-10% evaporates within the first few hours of a spill.  An Incident Command Post (ICP) is in place to coordinate a response to the incident. The ICP is led by a Unified Command with a representative from the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG); BC Ministry of Environment, and the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation.  A Joint Information Centre has been established for regular updates and can be found below.
