Report Tar Balls at firstname.lastname@example.org
When making a report, please be sure to include exact location (GPS coordinates if available),
and/or landmarks and photos with a reference object (ie. shoe or quarter) so pollution responders can assess the report.
Hazards to Human Health
Oil contains hazardous chemicals, and the public is reminded to avoid contact with the tar balls. If
contact occurs, wash the area with soap and water, baby oil, or a widely used, safe cleaning. Avoid
using solvents, gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, or similar products on the skin. These products, when
applied to skin, present a greater health hazard than the tar ball itself.
