Foss Maritime to pay $1.1m for Oil Damage

Wednesday, February 28, 2007
Foss Maritime Co. will pay the Suquamish Tribe $1.1 million for environmental and spiritual damage caused by a 2003 oil spill near Edmonds, Snohomish County, reported by the AP. Nearly 4,700 gallons of heavy oil polluted a section of the tribe’s shellfish beds at Indianola when a Foss barge was overfilled at a fueling station at Point Wells on Dec. 30, 2003. The tribe announced that it had reached a settlement with Foss on Feb. 9. It plans to use the money to help build a $20m cultural and economic revitalization project on the reservation. Foss, which took responsibility for the accident, previously paid the tribe $126,000, plus $265,000 to a federal fund for environmental cleanup projects. Source: AP
