In this Sept. 16, 2013 file photo, a Maston ship sits in Honolulu Harbor near the site of a molasses spill. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has reached a settlement with the shipping company responsible for the 1,400-ton molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor in 2013. The federal agency announced in a statement Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017 that Matson Terminals Inc. will pay a civil penalty of $725,000. The molasses leaked from a section of pipe that had been flagged by the state a year before the spill. (AP Photo/Oskar Garcia, File)
