By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

One last roundup of Puget Sound news before the holidays...

First off, the Peninsula Daily News takes a look back at a massive oil spill that happened on Dec. 21, 1985, near Port Angeles. The newspaper’s coverage includes a gallery of historical photos.

The article details some of the changes that followed this spill in terms of response. For more information on how Ecology responds to and tries to prevent such incidents, see our Spills Program website. You can also follow Spills issues on Facebook.
