Coast Guard Responds to Diesel Spill

Earlier this month, the US Coast Guard responded to a diesel spill in West Bay Marina near Olympia, Wash., following the sinking of 92-foot recreational yacht King’s Way.

The agency enacted the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund and asked Global Diving and Salvage to remove the spilled diesel, and recover any leftover pollution within the yacht, which had a reported 1,200 gallons of fuel.

Officials from the Incident Management Division, Washington State response personnel from Department of Ecology, Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Port of Olympia were also on hand to curb the environmental impact of the spill.
