The Coast Guard reports a tanker unloading liquid asphalt at the Exxon terminal in Everett spilled about 11,000 gallons of the stuff into the river around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday after a hose failed.
The liquid asphalt has solidified on the surface of the water. The asphalt is contained around the ship and there have been no known environmental impacts.
The Coast Guard has hired a couple of local hazardous-waste removal companies to clean up the asphalt from the Palanca Singapore.
