New River Sunken Vessel

On-Scene Coordinator

Fort Lauderdale, FL 32784
NRC#: 1055291

On 27-JUL-13, a partially sunken vessel was discovered in the inter-costal waterway. Due to the presence of oil within the partially sunken vessel causing a discharge and the lack of resources by the boat owner, OSC Stilman issued a pollution removal funding authorization to FLDEP, under the oil fund to prevent further discharge.
