Piti’s Apra Harbor fell victim to a reported oil spill over the weekend.
According to Port General Manager Rory Respicio, the F1 Pier had an estimated 100 gallons from a SUMP spilling into it yesterday.
Respicio told PNC that at around 2 pm yesterday the Port reported to both Coast Guard and TrisStar which manages the F1 pier.
The leak was confirmed to only be at the F1 pier and the Leak was reportedly cleared yesterday.
An Environmental Protection Agency investigator was on the scene and with aid from Tristar, Unitek, and the Guam Coast Guard the shoreside was cleaned up.
The Port General Manger told PNC that the sludge in the overflow tank was completely drained earlier today; however, there was some slight film on the rick area of the shoreside.
Booms, which help in controlling or blocking navigation within a port, were reportedly changed, presumably due to the oil spill.
Reportedly the sun should have evaporated the residual oil by the end of today.
