The current Grays Harbor GRP was published in March 2003. Work to update the plan began in August 2009. The updated draft version of the plan is significantly more detailed, and nearly six times larger than the existing plan. All parts of the existing plan were reviewed and updated, with two dozen response strategies added.

The plan was developed with input from citizens, resource managers, spill response contractors, industry representatives, and local officials.

All comments received will be reviewed and considered before the final version of the plan is produced.

Comments may be submitted to [email protected] or mailed to Washington Department of Ecology, Spill Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (GRPs), P.O. Box 47600, Olympia, WA 98504-7600.

The GRP is part of the larger Northwest Area Contingency Plan.
