That smell by the s-curves -- that’s UniSea cleaning up its 30-year-old seafood waste pile. Vice President of corporate affairs -- Chris Plaisance says the company is taking action now because the Environmental Protection Agency has issued a consent decree -- ordering them to remove the legacy waste pile and disperse it six to seven miles out to sea.
He expects the dredging project to be completed by mid July. Then the outfall area will be left to settle. After two months, underwater survey equipment will be brought in to ensure the pile has been successfully removed
