Coast Guard Opens ICW After Fuel Dissipates

Tuesday, February 13, 2007
The Coast Guard opened the Intracoastal Waterway after the fuel that spilled earlier dissipated. Pollution Investigators from Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Port Arthur assessed the waterway and declared that there was no recoverable diesel fuel. Approximately six miles of the ICW was closed west of Lake Charles, La., this morning after a tug accidentally spilled diesel fuel while transferring it from its fuel tanks to its day tanks. The fuel that was leaked was a marine grade diesel fuel, which dissipated quickly. Twelve tugs and barges were delayed by the closure, but are now underway again.
