Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. On June 23, 1976, the tugboat Eileen C was pushing the NEPCO 140 barge filled with crude oil when it ran aground in the American Narrows off Wellesley Island in the Thousand Islands region. The Captain had not made a large enough adjustment to his course when realizing the vessel was off track in the thick fog. Upon running aground, the barge ruptured two tanks and began leaking oil. It then backed off the rock and resumied its upriver journey. The barge again ran aground four miles further upriver and ruptured another tank on a shoal near Mason Point while trying to set anchor per the U.S. Coast Guard's orders. The barge leaked oil into the River for more than a day. The spill was carried over an 80-mile section of the St. Lawrence River by the river's swift current. As far downriver as Massena, New York and Brockville, Ontario. Shoreline, wildlife, rocks, and boats were covered with oil. Oil penetrated into extensive marshland areas. At the time of the accident the spill was the worst inland oil spill in North American history.
