Kathryn Spirit (2013)
LOCATION: Beauharnois, Quebec
Case number: 120-642-R
On September 19, 2013, the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) informed the Administrator about a potential oil pollution incident involving the ship Kathryn Spirit, which was moored on the shores of Lake Saint-Louis, in Beauharnois since 2011.
On July 5, 2016, the CCG advised the Administrator that they had taken actions to install 2,000 feet of boom around the vessel. In addition, Groupe Océan was contracted to provide tugs to stabilize the vessel.
Dismantling operations of the Kathryn Spirit began in December 2017. In February 2018, it was reported that they were expected to be completed in the fall.
No claim has been filed with the Administrator.
The file remains open.
