Geographic response plans are tailored to reduce the effects of oil spills to sensitive natural, cultural and economic resources. The goals of the workshop are to:
* Provide information about the use and expectations of geographic response plans during spill incidents.
* Solicit local information to update existing geographic response plans, including site-access points such as boat ramps and marinas, as well as sensitive natural resources, cultural resources and significant economic resources.
* Ensure that those attending understand the plan-updating process and are provided the opportunity to participate.
