The ship, in drydock off the eponymous avenue in South Boston, got quick attention from the Coast Guard, the state Department of Environmental Protection and Boston firefighters, after the leak was reported around 9 p.m., the Coast Guard says:
Response teams placed 600 feet of double boom around the dry dock to ensure no oil enters the water and six commercial vacuum trucks were deployed to clean up the spill.
