The Department of Environment told Cayman 27 while the owners of a cargo ship that ran aground 10 days ago have accepted liability, an agreement has not yet been made to pay for damages to the reef at Eden Rock.

The says the owners of the 328-foot Saga have contracted Polaris Applied Science to examine and access the site. That’s the same firm Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen hired to repair a West side reef destroyed by his mega-yacht Tatoosh in January of this year.

“The tatoosh site, it went extremely well. It’s not ideal, it doesn’t put it back to perfect, but it’s certainly a starting point and it will help to speed up the recovery of this area,” said DOE Deputy Director Tim Austin.

The DOE said it’s reviewing Polaris’ draft restoration work proposal, and plans to discuss the plan with representatives of the ship’s owners in the near future.
