The News Observer (Raleigh. NC) reported about “a realistic time frame for a true cleanup.”

Chairman and professor in the Rosenstiel School’s Division of Applied Marine Physics at the University of Miami, Hans Graber, says, “That even after all the surface ‘skimmers’ are gone, ‘It’s probably a fair guess to say we’re looking at years, if not tens of years, for all of this stuff to eventually come to the surface.’”

The article adds, “Oil floating underwater, beyond the reach of cleanup efforts and not exposed to sun, wind and wave action, could be an ongoing plague.”
