Oil Spill at Naval Sub Base Bangor

Loss of 2,000 gallons of oil into Hood Canal.

An oil spill at Bangor Naval Base on February 10th has prompted a warning for Hood Canal shellfish harvesters. After Monday’s spill, estimated at 2,000 gallons, the state Department of Health issued a shellfish advisory for Hood Canal from Brown Point on the Toandos Peninsula to the Hood Canal Bridge.

State health officials are advising people not to harvest or eat shellfish from that area until further notice because of the possibility of contamination by pollutants. Jefferson County Public Health officials posted emergency closure signs at the public boat ramp at Hicks County Park, the only public access point on the western shore. The closure includes Case Shoal, DNR-57B and DNR-59 shellfish beaches that are accessible only by boat.
Navy spokesman Tom Danaher said the spill occurred while transferring oily water off a submarine. A failure in a transfer system on the pier caused a tank to overflow, spilling the mixture into Hood Canal.
An absorbent boom was placed around the spill at Delta Pier, but some escaped into the canal. The Navy, state Department of Ecology and Coast Guard have been working to clean up the spill since, Danaher said.
