The Deepwater Horizon Spill happened more than 2 years ago but still frustration continues along the Gulf Coast. Crews are continuing to clean up oil.
Just this week the U.S. Coast Guard reported a new sheen near the site of the Macondo Well.

Officials with the State's Coastal Protection And Restoration Authority say already
some 565,000 pounds of oiled material, including tar mats and balls from the 2010 spill, has been collected just since Hurricane Isaac churned up the Gulf Of Mexico. BP has resumed responsibility for cleaning the crude up but there is word on if, or when, clean up of this recent find will begin.
