USCG Investigates Alcohol Leak on Ohio River Barge

Thursday, February 24, 2011

The Coast Guard is responding to a report of an isopropyl alcohol leak from a barge in the Ohio River, Feb. 21.

 
At about 5:30 a.m., the captain of the tug vessel Bridget Cauley notified watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley that alcohol was reportedly leaking from the top portion of a barge that the Bridget Cauley was pushing, spilling an unknown amount on to the deck of the barge, while transiting the river approximately five miles south of Cincinnati.
 
A pollution investigation team from Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Cincinnati was dispatched to the scene.
 
A temporary patch placed over the hole was effective in securing the leak; however, the Bridget Cauley remains under a Captain of the Port order until a final repair is made.
 
The cause of the incident is under investigation.
