GALVESTON — As the cleanup operation for the Galveston Bay oil spill entered its 10th day Monday, officials began to talk about how they will begin to scale back the response that has now involved more than 2,200 people.

Officials said Monday they were beginning to develop standards on how clean is clean enough for crews to be able to stand down along the 100 or so miles of Texas shoreline that has been effected by the oil spill.

“The unified command works with the trustees for all the areas to develop a plan to give us an endpoint of what clean is for that area,” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Andy Kendrick, a spokesman for the Unified Command Center responding to the spill.
