NEW CASTLE, N.H. (AP) - The Coast Guard and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are continuing to clean up oily water discharged from a ship into the Piscataqua River.

The Coast Guard says the discharge came from NOAA’s Ferdinand R. Hassler ship on Tuesday. The cause of the spill is still under investigation and the exact amount spilled is unconfirmed. NOAA says the maximum capacity of the affected tank was 750 gallons, but it was only partially filled before the spill took place.

The Coast Guard says it has found no evidence of pollution ashore and no reports of affected wildlife.
