DETROIT'S MARINE POLLUTION CALLED TO HELP CLEAN UP SPILL IN FLORIDA

 DETROIT, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Detroit's Marine Pollution Control has been asked to send 100 recovery technicians to help clean up a spill caused by a three-vessel collision in Florida Aug. 10.
 Dave Usher, MPC president, said that the workers will help clean up the coast line along St. Petersburg's beaches.
 Between 210,000 to 336,000 gallons of oil were reportedly spilled when three vessels -- the Philippine freighter Balsa 37, and two barges -- collided at the entrance to the channel leading to Tampa Bay, Fla.
 Marine Pollution Control has participated in major oil spill cleanups for more than 26 years. MPC participated in the cleanup of the Exxon Valdez as well as the Persian Gulf during the war.
