Cleaning Oil Out of Florida's Waterways

Photo here is of oil sheen coming into marsh and wetland areas.  The worker has deployed what is commonly referred to as Pom Pom Booms.  The Pom Pom Booms primarily act as containment buffers.  At some point int he future we may be seeing oil up in Florida's fresh water systems, including springs.  We will be exploring how floating wetland systems can possibly absorb and clean oil contained water and keep you up to date on the results.  We use floating wetlands to clean stormwater - how about for cleaning Oil Spills?
