A 1,095-foot container ship called Ever Forward is finally moving again after it ran aground near Craighill Channel in the Chesapeake Bay on March 13. But the costs associated with trying to dislodge the ship and its environmental impacts to the Bay remain unclear. Attempts to refloat the ship, owned by Evergreen Marine Corporation, began at the end of March, when authorities dredged around the vessel and removed debris and mud to a depth of 43 feet. The material dredged was taken to Polar Island.
