Maryland State expects Evergreen to cover the financial costs resulting from the environmental impact of Ever Forward grounding.
The Ever Forward container ship refloated on Sunday morning after remaining stuck in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland for over a month.
USCG has decided that the best strategy to refloat the EVER Forward is a lightering operation which could take another two weeks.
After more than a week of dredging mud, crews made their first attempt to refloat the Ever Forward containership.
The Evergreen Marine-owned containership Ever Forward ran aground on March 13 in the Chesapeake Bay and remains stuck.
