Port sets up decontamination station
PASCAGOULA — The Port of Pascagoula has set up a decontamination station to check incoming vessels for oil on their hulls.
Port Director Mark McAndrews says the station is set up at the channel entrance, and any ship that has oil on its hull is being cleaned before entering the channel. McAndrews told The Mississippi Press that the oil threat hasn’t had much of an impact on ship traffic yet.
