s can make their way to nearby water systems, therefore polluting our water supply or life in the oceans.

Dangers of Oil Spills
Oil spills travel quickly and Thor Spill and Containment emphasizes understanding the risks involved. When oil absorbent pads are not used, such spills can travel to the ocean, affecting not only the water we swim in, but also the animals that live in such habitats. Runoff from oil spills occurring on line are regarded as one of the most common causes of oil spills. Even spills occurring on land can be just as dangerous, as such toxic waste can travel to streams, lakes, ground water, and other water systems. Once oil spills travel and grow in size, it can take months to years to clean the spill. Oil absorbent pads help stop the spill in its track before it has the chance to cause damage. Thor Spill and Containment’s oil absorbent pads promote protecting the environment as well as abiding by environmental regulations.
