Decontamination of Clam Ship Complete After Munitions Exposure

Decontamination of a clam boat that dragged up canisters of mustard gas earlier this month is now complete.

The coast guard says there is no detectable sulfur mustard contamination aboard the ESS Pursuit.

In addition, 180 clam cages were also decontaminated.

Back on June 6th, the clam boat dragged up mustard-gas tainted munitions, sending several crew members to the hospital.
