Given the importance of protecting the environment today, it’s not surprising that
many companies have emerged to fill this niche. Environmental remediation is not
new. We’ve seen the ecological and environmental impacts from the Exxon Valdez,
By the way, did you know Maine Maritime Academy has a number of new positions.
But back to environmental response, it's a big business. Oil spill contractors,
hazardous waste disposal contractors, groundwater contamination consultants,
asbestos abatement and encapsulation contractors, and asbestos air monitoring
technicians have grown in numbers. Petroleum spills and chemical spills involving
substances like mercury, arsenic, barium, chromium, pesticides, DDT and  
groundwater contaminants affect public safety. See
incident reporting requirements .
In the past several decades, many important laws emerged to protect the
environment and ecosystems such as RCRA, CERCLA, Oil Pollution Act of 1990,
Clean Water Act, NESHAPS, Clean Air Act,
the two hour rule and other legislation.
Below, we feature a few for work in the water and oil pollution control industry.

some of your comments that
we have a couple of khaki

for a chance to shift gears away
from the tugboat life. The

As you'll see in the video, the ship doesn't sink on an even keel. The video can be
viewed at
Analyzing Marine Accidents. The importance of the even keel sinking
was to attract divers. A ship on its side would draw less divers and tourists. One of
the most amazing scenes in the video is seawater pours into the open trunk of the
forward hold like Niagara Falls as the ship rolls on her side.

The importance of environmental jobs is apparent in recent headlines. When the container ship
Cosco Busan hit the tower of the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, some 50,000 gallons of
fuel oil were released onto San Francisco Bay. The recent casualty of the Deepwater Horizon in
the Gulf is proof that marine ecosystems are delicate and fragile, and closely intertwined with
fisheries and tourism industries. In April of 2010, the coal carrier Shen Neng I, pictured below,
ran aground on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
