The Proprietors of Union Wharf in Portland and the Marine Spill Response Corp, w
The Proprietors of Union Wharf in Portland and the Marine Spill Response Corp, which owns the Maine Responder, an oil-spill cleanup vessel, have signed a 20-year contract to berth the vessel at Union Wharf. The vessel is now berthed at the Portland Pipe Line Corp. pier in South Portland, and will probably remain there until the spring of 1995, when a channel will have been dredged around the wharf and a new warehouse completed. Marine Spill Response is a non-profit organization established by the country's major oil companies after Congress passed the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, which required shippers to develop a national oil-spill response plan.
