Just four Delaware beaches — Gordon’s Pond at Cape Henlopen State Park, North Shores Beach, Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach — await a final sign-off following cleanup of the Oct. 20 oil spill, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control announced today.

The unified command under the U.S. Coast Guard and DNREC will continue to survey beaches and dispatch cleanup crews as necessary.

The spill was first reported at Broadkill Beach, and the oil spread down Delaware Bay and into the Atlantic Ocean and into Maryland. As crews conduct final assessments, beachgoers should avoid any remaining oily debris deposited along the wrack or high tide line.

The public is asked to continue reporting sizeable sightings of oiled debris, tar balls or oiled wildlife to DNREC at 800-662-8802 and the Maryland Department of the Environment at 866-633-4686.
