On June 7, reports state the dredge Ibis has released pollution into the waters off Ullal, India. The dredge has been slowly sinking by the stern when a fuel tank was punctured by a large rock. There is a strong odor of diesel fuel in the air. Locals report other debris has also begun washing onto the beach.
Authorities had stated a team of experts were supposed to be at the wreck site by June 4, but did not arrive until the next day.
Another report states that authorities had been instructed to remove fuel and oil off the Ibis, but could not be attempted due to weather and rough seas. Thus, no fuel or oil has been removed from the dredge.
