An oily substance has come ashore just off of Ward Basin Road in the Blackwater Bay.
The property owner, Jim Melvin said he noticed the oil like substance and what looked to be sheen at around 10:30 Friday morning.
“It looks like tidal foam mixed with oil,” Melvin said. “It was just an awful mess.”
Melvin said a county worker had come by to collect samples of the look-a-like oil soon after he saw a glimpse of it and reported it.
