ABERDEEN — For the first time in 15 years, the barge slip on the Chehalis River at Satsop is being put to use.

The Brown-Minneapolis Tank company plans to ship eight of its 50,000-gallon tanks Tuesday to Alaska.

The company has said the availability of the barge slip was key in its decision to move last year from Olympia to the unfinished nuclear power plant site.

KXRO reports the last time the slip was used, it was shipping out parts of the deconstructed nuclear site in 1995.
