Barge takes on water in Nantucket Harbor
A 150-foot barge with gravel on board is taking on water this morning in Nantucket Harbor, the US Coast Guard said. Coast Guard Petty Officer Connie Terrell said there is no pollution, and marine inspectors are on scene. The barge is tied to a pier owned by the Steamship authority, at 1 Steamboat Wharf in Nantucket. The problem was reported by people on a tug boat next to the barge last night at about 9 p.m.
