Grand River Navigation, the owners of the ship, has hired an Oil Spill Removal Organization to place boom near the front of the vessel as a precaution.

An investigating officer and safety officer from the Coast Guard are on board the Calumet.

The U.S. Coast Guard reported that the vessel left Essar Steel in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and was heading downbound in the St. Mary's River to its next port in Brevort, Michigan when it ran aground. The vessel was not carrying any cargo.

Contracted divers conducted an initial assessment of the vessel's stern Thursday and determined that it is structurally sound.

The owner of the vessel is working on a salvage plan, and the cause of the grounding is under investigation.
