Crews expect to start plugging well permanently soon

Monday, August 2, 2010 - 6:24pm

Crews in the Gulf could begin the process to permanently plug the busted well as early as Monday night.

If successful, the procedure known as the "static kill" could be the first step to stopping the leak for good.

The operation involves pumping mud and cement into the well.

It was put on hold while debris from the last tropical storm was cleared from the area.
