On December 30, 2003, a spill occurred into Puget Sound during loading of oil onto the Foss Maritime Company (Foss) tank barge 248-P2 at the Point Wells asphalt facility in Shoreline, Washington. Approximately 4,637 gallons of Bunker fuel (#6) were released into the marine waters of Puget Sound. Impacted areas included intertidal and subtidal shellfish habitats of the coastal salt marsh estuary of Port Madison. Approximately 3.5 acres of the Indianola shoreline and 2.8 acres of the Doe-Kag-Wats marsh were oiled. In addition to habitat impacts, documented injuries also include oil impacts to birds, mammals, fish, bivalves, and recreational uses.
