I didn't know that and I admit I was incorrect. It will be interesting to see if the government pursues this clause in the CWA which it has never done previously (to my knowledge) probably because gross negligence is always a high bar to reach even in this case.

I wonder how difficult it will be for BP to defend this civil litigation
based upon a number (spill volume) no one can precisely determine.
