Guam - Approximately 250 gallons of fuel oil inadvertently spilled from USNS TSgt John A. Chapman (T-AK 323) into Apra Harbor while moored at Kilo Wharf on Sunday. According to Joint Region Marianas, responders from U.S. Coast Guard Sector Guam, U.S. Naval Base Guam port operations and DZSP 21 LLC, responded and were able to clean up the spill on the same day. We should note that this incident is unrelated to the cleanup of hazardous materials and debris from Japanese commercial fishing vessel, the Daiki Maru, that ran aground in Apra Harbor two weeks ago.
