Meanwhile nobody knows what this substance is and the cause of the spill.

A boat crew from the Oswego station, ten miles to the southwest, took samples of the sheen while another Coast Guard unit established a “temporary safety zone”.

Officials responded Sunday to a report of a sheen in Lake Ontario near the Fitzpatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Scriba, New York, about 40 miles north of Syracuse.

A Coast Guard Auxiliary air crew had noticed it during a flight and reported it. The cause is unknown.

It is still unknown how long the safety zone will be in place.
