Cargo ship, crew stuck at Minnesota harbor nearly month over alleged environmental violations


MINNEAPOLIS — A German-operated cargo ship and crew have been stuck at anchor outside the Lake Superior port of Duluth for close to a month for unspecified environmental violations, with no resolution in sight despite the upcoming closure of the St. Lawrence Seaway for winter, officials said Wednesday.

The U.S. Coast Guard said the Liberian-flagged Cornelia is being investigated for "alleged violations of U.S. environmental regulations," and the ship and crew are prohibited from leaving Duluth until they get clearance from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The Coast Guard can't say what the alleged violations were because of the ongoing investigation, but they didn't take place in Duluth, said Petty Officer 3rd Class Christopher Yaw, a spokesman in Cleveland.
