Press Release

Today, Senator Brian Schatz announced that he is in contact with federal agencies to aid the State response to the spill of an estimated 224,000 gallons of molasses on Sunday, September 8, 2013. Since the molasses spill, hundreds of fish have died, and its long term impacts on fish and other marine life are uncertain.

"Today I have contacted state officials and federal officials at NOAA, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Army Corps of Engineers to get briefed on the situation and to ensure that all appropriate federal resources and expertise are focused on this spill," said Senator Brian Schatz. "We must take swift action in order to minimize harm to our oceans and natural resources."
