USA cargo ship runs aground in Northern Michigan waterway

There were no injuries, the U.S. Coast Guard was on the scene.

"They're going to anchor it there and do an examination".

The 19,600 dwt self-unloading bulker Calumet, departed Essar Steel in Sault Ste.

A merchant freighter ran aground downstream from the Soo Locks of the St. Mary's River on Wednesday, Aug. 9 around 11:40 p.m.

The vessel's name is "Calumet" and Murphy said it remains grounded north of Sugar Island.

The Coast Guard says the 629′ USA cargo ship ran aground on the north side of Sugar Island Wednesday night at approximately 11:40pm.

Aerial Coast Guard flights on Thursday and Friday showed no evidence of pollution. That leaves 12 vessels waiting in Lake Superior to go down-bound and three waiting to go up-bound.

Rand Logistics Group subsidiary Grand River Navigation, the owner of the ship, has hired an Oil Spill Removal Organization to place boom on the surface of the water near the front of the vessel to protect the environment as a precaution. That study estimated that a 30-day closure of the Soo Locks would have an economic impact to industry of $160 million - or more than $5 million per day.
