Butterfly buoys float Duwamish


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Butterflies made of floating containment booms are seen grouped together in the Duwamish River just off the tip of Kellogg Island as seen from the air Tuesday. Whether for purpose or art, they are a touch of whimsy in the Superfund site. Floating booms are sometimes used around marine construction sites or to help contain petroleum spills, said George Blomberg, an environment planner for the Port of Seattle.
