At approximately 10:10 am this morning, Tidewater Transportation and Terminals became aware of an overfill of a vessel tank, resulting in a spill of diesel to the Columbia River at the Tidewater Vancouver facility in Vancouver, Washington. Tankermen activated the emergency shutdown to prevent further discharge into the river. Previously deployed containment boom around the vessel had a tear; initial reports indicate the released diesel is estimated at 5.3 barrels into the river.
