USCG coordilnates efforts to salvage beached Army vessel 'Monterey' & prevent oil spill pollution on Alaskan coast

Coast Guard personnel are continuing to work with key stakeholders to clean and contain the area around the Army vessel Monterrey, which began taking on water Friday night and remains beached on Puffin Island.

After a shoreline assessment by two Marine Safety Detachment Kodiak teams, two areas were identified for cleanup. Absorbent pads will be used to clean as much fuel from these areas as possible.

Containment booms established around the Monterrey have reportedly remained effective and absorbent material on the booms is being replaced regularly.

“We are continuing to work with our federal, state, and local agencies as well as industry representatives to minimize the impact of the fuel spill,” said Lt. Matthew Zinn, supervisor of MSD Kodiak. “Everyone involved is committed to returning the water and shoreline in the area to its original, pristine state.”
