Lodge Owners Charged Nearly 8M For Oil Spill Cleanup In Kodiakadmin September 14, 2019 0 COMMENTS
The U.S. Justice Department ordered the repayment by lodge owners Bruce and Yvonne Cooper and former lodge operator and tenant Mark Krall. Responders deployed booms around a dock and adjacent beach, collecting 1,878 bags of waste. The cleanup costing about $9 million was financed by the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, the U.S. Coast Guard said. It was determined that cause of the spill was that the dock structure supporting the building collapsed. This caused much of the building, along with the fuel bladder, to fall to the shoreline and water below. The entire contents of the bladder, roughly 3,000 gallons, were released. According to reports, the Coopers and Krall are unable to repay the money, but the Justice Department is pursuing the funds.
