Officials deny dispersant use, residents beg to differ

When reached for comment, Lt. Cmdr. Dale Vogelsang, liaison officer with the United State Coast Guard, told The Log he had contacted Unified Command and they had “confirmed” that dispersants were not being used in Florida waters.

“Dispersants are only being used over the wellhead in Louisiana,” Vogelsang said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From Transcript of Thad Allen's Aug. 9 briefing with reporters

Thad Allen: We have not used dispersant since the capping stack was put on. I believe that was the 15th of July. ... But I would tell you, there are no dispersants being used at this time.

Admiral, your pants are on fire!
