Deceptive C grounded in Striking Strait

F/V Deceptive C grounded in Stikine Strait, approximately 17 nautical miles from Wrangell, Monday evening. No injuries reported.

Responders from Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Ketchikan led the response and worked with Coast Guard Sector Juneau and ADEC to mitigate the pollution and eliminate the potential for further environmental impact.

MSD Ketchikan opened the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund and hired Power Systems and Supplies, a contracted Oil Spill Removal Organization, to clean the discharged diesel fuel and to remove any oil products and hazardous materials from the Deceptive C. Approximately 3000 pounds of oily waste and debris was recovered from the grounded vessel.
