SF Oil Spill Settlement ... Mine Cleanup
Settlement Reached in Cosco Busan Oil Spill
The operators of the cargo ship Cosco Busan, which caused a major oil spill when it ran into the Bay Bridge in 2007, will pay $44.4 million in penalties and reimbursments.
Cleanup Slated to Begin at Remote Mines
Meanwhile, cleanup could begin this week on two Northern California mines that have been polluting waterways for decades. The mines are now eligible for millions in federal funds.
