Tankers and waterway width

Submitted by: NS NOPE

The evidence:

Local residents are concerned about potential collisions between pleasure craft and tankers, tankers running aground as boats have run aground in the past, human error, and a lack of transparency as residents have seen workers in hazmat suits cleaning up areas on the beach near WMT with no information on any incidents that were available in the media or from the company.
