“Today, it's basically monitoring the situation. The main pollution threat has been responded to,” Linda Kent told The News Tribune of Tacoma.
The leak on the 28-foot pleasure craft was discovered shortly after 6 p.m. at Lucas Landing.
Workers with Ecology, the Coast Guard, Gig Harbor Fire and a contractor used absorbent pads and an oil sweep to clean up the spill.
Global Diving and Salvage divers plugged the leak and recovered an additional 15 gallons from the fiberglass boat.
