The public is invited to attend an informational online-only webinar about the Grays Harbor Vessel Traffic Risk Assessment project at 10 a.m. on Thurs., Feb. 22. The purpose of the webinar is to describe the risk assessment goals, methods, progress to date, and next steps. If you cannot attend the meeting, we will post a recording of it on our website. The public will have a chance to comment on the draft report, expected to be out this summer.
We received funding in the 2017-2019 biennium to conduct a vessel traffic risk assessment (VTRA) for Grays Harbor. This builds on our previous work for the Columbia River, Salish Sea, and the 2014 Marine and Rail Oil Transportation Study. The purpose for doing this type of study is to assess oil spill risks and develop regionally specific recommendations for improvement.
