The US Coast Guard responded to a report of a diesel fuel discharge on the Mobile River near Mount Vernon, Alabama, on Thursday.

According to the Coast Guard, the National Response Center received a report at approximately 6:10 p.m. that a Parker Towing-owned tug vessel spilled between an estimated 300 to 500 gallons of diesel fuel into the water during vessel refuelling operations near mile marker 36.7 on the Mobile River.

Members from the Coast Guard Sector Mobile Incident Management Division were notified and arrived on scene at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Boom and sorbent material were used to reduce the spread of oil and collect oil from the water's surface.

Approximately 100 gallons of product are said to have been recovered.

The US Coast Guard's Sector Mobile Incident Management Division is overseeing all response operations.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
