UPDATE: We contacted the Harbormaster who advised they noted the condition yesterday morning (May 21, 2012) and reported it to the US Coast Guard at 430am. When we contacted the Coast Guard, Tanya Altman advised that the Pollution Investigator looked into it and determined it to be soap which was dissipating. However, this does not seem to be the case and it is possible there are two separate incidents. Eye On Annapolis has forwarded the photos we were supplied to the Coast Guard for follow up.
The City of Annapolis has advised that the Harbormaster Office filed a report with the MDE and Coast Guard National Pollution Response Center as an immediate precaution and they are now in charge of the investigation. We have not been able to contact them at this time, but will update as soon as possible.
In the meantime, another reader sent these pictures fro Ego Alley this morning. Despite some people claiming it is a normal “Mahogany Tide”, these pictures seem to suggest otherwise.
