Cornelia to leave Duluth

The German ship that has been at anchor outside of the Duluth-Superior harbor for more than a month, is finally leaving. 

The U.S. Coast Guard says an agreement has been reached that will let the Cornelia leave the Duluth Port. 

Coast Guard spokesman, Petty Officer 3rd Class Christopher Yaw, said Thursday the only information he has is that an agreement has been reached and that the Cornelia is making preparations to depart. 

There is no information on when the ship will leave or any details of the agreement. 

The Cornelia was allowed to dock Thursday to refuel.  

Adele Yorde, spokeswoman for the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, says the ship should be ready to depart before noon Friday. 

The ship was being investigated for alleged violations related to the discharge of oily water.
