Once the vessel is refloated, it will be towed to a designated anchorage in Lake Nickolet for exterior and interior hull examinations. On Saturday morning, with the river open, the number had been cut to seven.

Twelve vessels were waiting to transit downbound, while five waited to travel upbound after the river was closed to commercial traffic from Soo Locks to 6 Mile Point.

On Friday, up to 17 vessels were waiting to go up or down the river. All vessels without prior authorization from the Captain of the Port or his designated representatives shall stay out of the safety zone. "The Army Corps is going to look at the area of the river where it was grounded and from there, they'll determine if and when they can open up the channel", Coast Guard Master Chief Alan Haraf told the News Tribune.

The ignorance of every single public figure regarding these facts is more unsafe than anything President Tweety may say. See the millions of cars they sell in the U.S.? Sooner or later someone should take them seriously.


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.

The Calumet had left a steel mill on the Canadian side of Sault Ste.

An initial assessment of the vessel's stern performed by contracted divers has determined that it is structurally sound.

The cause is under investigation, and no injuries were reported. The ship was not carrying any cargo, which made freeing it less complicated.
