1996 : Julie N. crashes into the Million Dollar

September 27, 1996, the Liberian tanker Julie N. hit the Million Dollar Bridge in Portland, Maine and let out 700,000 liters of fuel in the Fore River estuary. The Million Dollar Bridge, built in 1916, had a width which was not adapted to super tankers. At the time of the accident, a new bridge, the Casco Bay Bridge, more modern, was under construction. The accident, although many of the chemicals was recovered, caused great damage to the flora and fauna.
