Members assigned to U.S. Coast Guard Sector Charleston are monitoring a sunken vessel Wednesday for potential pollution in Shem Creek, in Mount Pleasant, S.C.

The Coast Guard was notified by the Charleston County 911 Consolidate Dispatch that the commercial fishing vessel Lady Eva was at the Wando Seafood Company dock and sinking in Shem Creek. Upon being notified of the incident, the Coast Guard dispatched pollution responders to determine if the vessel was discharging any hazardous material.

The owner of the Lady Eva informed the Coast Guard the vessel had little to no fuel aboard due to operations over the last few days. Soft sorbent padding and sausage boom has been placed around the vessel in an effort to capture any residual pollution. The owner is working with SeaTow to conduct recovery operations on the vessel.

No injuries were reported in this incident.
