The Delanco, a 92' tugboat, ran aground in Semiahmoo Bay due to a piloting error on June 28. 

A spill response team from the Department of Ecology (DOE) responded, but it was determined that no spill had occurred in the bay. “The captain of the boat wasn’t familiar with the area and cut the corner too close,” said a DOE spokesperson. “It floated itself off the flats at the next high tide.”
