Public Invited to Help Update Grays Harbor Spill Response Plan

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.
