VALDEZ, UNITED STATES: An oil skimming operation works in a heavy oil slick near Latouche Island in the southwest end of Prince William Sound 01 April 1989 in Valdez, Alaska, one week after the beginning of an oil disaster which occurred when the tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground 24 March 1989 and spilled 11 million gallons of crude oil into Prince William Sound. As the ten-year anniversary of the spill approaches, the sound is still recovering, according to a report issued by the joint federal and state council that monitors the continuing effects of the disaster.
