Oil Spill in Pocasset River in Bourne

Oil Spill in Pocasset River in Bourne

8/14/18Cleanup continued this weekend after an Upper Cape oil spill on Friday.

The Bourne Enterprise reports firefighters deployed booms to keep the oil in the Pocasset River from reaching the shore or estuaries, and then a new boom was deployed on Saturday to absorb the oil, which was believed to be diesel-based.

Bourne Fire Department officials say they have not been able to determine the origin of the spill or how much oil spilled into the river.
