Re: NFC: Exxon Valdez has hit my tanks

If it is a very thin layer, one can place newspapers to soak up the oil, 
or dry sawdust.  You can also get absorbents from industrial supply 
houses that will only absorb oil, not water.  Personally, I would check 
out my equipment and find out where the oil is coming from - perhaps one 
of your water pumps blew out a seal.
