CUYAHOGA Arrives and Departs

CUYAHOGA arrived in Erie this morning at 0130 and docked at the North Pier to unload sand from Thessalon, Ontario. This is the third load of sand for beach replenishment. The vessel spent the night unloading, and after clearance from U.S. Customs, departed at 0730 bound for Cleveland to load salt.
