Photo Gallery: Winsor Cove (Bouchard 65 oil spill 1974)|
In October 1974, the oil barge Bouchard 65 spilled an unknown amount of diesel fuel in Buzzards Bay near the entrance to the Cape Cod Canal. This site has been studied by George Hampson since it occurred. To investigate the long-term fate of the spilled oil, we began to study it in 2002 and compare the results to our work at Wild Harbor Marsh.
