The committee makes decisions regarding the most appropriate damage assessment to pursue for oil spills in state waters, and evaluates restoration projects proposed by responsible parties in lieu of monetary claims.
The Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) committee, which is chaired by the Department of Ecology, includes representatives of the state departments of fish and wildlife, natural resources, health, archaeology and historic preservation, and the parks and recreation commission.
The committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 9:00 AM. Meetings are open to the public and held at the Department of Ecology, Headquarters Building, 300 Desmond Drive S.E., Lacey, WA.
