FEMA assigned the U.S. Coast Guard to the task of removing hazardous material that was washed into Pago Pago Harbor by the tsunami of September 29. The debris included vehicles, which threaten pollution from their gasoline, oil, battery acid, anti-freeze and other fluids. The Coast Guard contracted with Pacific Environmental Corp. (PENCO) to do the work. PENCO sent divers and it's 100-foot dive tender "American Islander" from Hawaii. The mission was completed in about three weeks under Coast Guard supervision.
