BP (NYSE:BP) spokesman Ray Melick said the oil giant is going to start deeper cleaning of the beaches in Alabama next week.
Melick said the company is waiting until after the weekend festivities, which include boat races and concerts in Baldwin County. They don't want to hurt the tourist money now coming into the region, so they're set to start next week.
Heavy equipment will be brought in to dig as deep as two feet below the surface to locate and clean the oil out.
Hopes are the cleanup of the beaches will be completed by January 1, 2011.
