Coast Guard responds to 570 foot vessel aground on the San Joaquin River

RIO VISTA, Calif – The U.S. Coast Guard responded to the report of a 570 foot bulk carrier that ran aground on the San Joaquin River east of Sherman Island last night.

The Tasman Revolution, a 570 ft bulk carrier, loaded with rice, steel, and lumber, was travelling outbound from Stockton, Calif, when it temporarily lost steering and made contact with the river bottom at approximately 8:30  pm.

Upon initial inspection by the vessel’s crew and Coast Guard units on scene, there appears to be no significant damage to the vessel. Examination of the vessel’s fuel tanks also indicate no apparent release of pollution into the water.

Under the assistance of a tug, the vessel is  enroute to an anchorage where it will be met by Coast Guard inspectors who will examine the cause of the incident and inspect the vessel for any damage.
