Intracoastal Waterway Reopens after fuel spill

Tuesday, February 13, 2007
The U.S. Coast Guard reopened the Intracoastal Waterway after fuel that had been spilled earlier this morning dissipated. Pollution investigators from Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit in Port Arthur assessed the waterway and declared that there was no recoverable diesel fuel. The waterway had been closed for six miles west of Lake Charles, La., after fuel being transferred from one tank to another on a tug owned by Kirby Inland Marine overflowed, the Coast Guard said. The Coast Guard was notified by the Houston-based company. The area from mile marker 257 to mile marker 263 was closed. Twelve tugs and barges were delayed by the closure, but are now under way again, the Coast Guard said. Source: Houston Chronicle
