Georgia Proposes $3 Million Fine For Cargo Ship Pollution

Georgia Proposes $3 Million Fine For Cargo Ship Pollution

Last summer, oil gushed from the wreckage and washed onto the beaches and marsh grasses of St. Simons Island, a popular tourist area. The South Korea-based firm will have a year to either pay the penalty or submit a plan for a proposed “supplemental environmental project” and obtain a reduced penalty, the agency said.

In an order posted Tuesday, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division said that pollutants, petroleum products and debris from the South Korean freighter Golden Ray were discharged into the water. The ship capsized on Sept. 8, 2019, shortly after departing the Port of Brunswick. But oil leaks continued several months later as workers cut the boat into chunks for removal from the ocean. Company representatives did not immediately return messages seeking comment on Wednesday.
