A year later, BP is still in the crosshairs of many. And anger against the company has not subsided along the Gulf Coast. Roughly 4.9 million barrels of oil blew out of BP's broken well and bled into the water, with a portion of that crude making landfall along the coastline. Add in the unknown effect of 1.84 million gallons (7 million L) of chemical dispersants, much of which were applied directly to the well deep below the surface of the ocean — something that had never been done before. Anita Stewart from the Hillsboruogh County Soil & Water Board returns to update us on the effects and toll the spill has taken.
