Barge overtaken by king tide leaks fluids into Petaluma River
A marine construction barge that apparently became stuck in the mud at low tide in the Petaluma River on Saturday was inundated by the rising tide overnight, becoming partially submerged and leaking fluids into the tidal slough… Moving the barge out of the navigation channel was expected to be a long-term challenge, and a problem for large boats just starting to use the river again after its recent, long-awaited dredging.
