Coast Guard crews have been working with contractors to remove pollution threats from harbors and marinas in southern Louisiana as part of recovery efforts from Hurricane Ida.
This footage, released by DVIDS on October 11, shows those assigned to the marine environmental response working at Jean Lafitte Harbor and Venice Marina, over a month after the storm.
Lt Anita Wade, assistant safety officer, said, “It’s been good to feel like a part of the response, but it’s also been hard to see folks that, a month out, are still struggling.”
Servicemembers can be seen in the video working to drain the tank of a vessel that was leaking fuel into the water. Credit: PO1 Nate Littlejohn/DVIDS via Storyful
