Ecology invites interested public and local and tribal governments to review and comment on significant updates to industry oil spill contingency plans.

The following plan is now available for public review:

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your comments. We will consider all comments and complete the review no later than 30 days after the close of the public review period.

We invite the public and local and tribal governments to review and comment on oil spill contingency plan updates. Washington Administrative Code (WAC) chapters 173-182 and 173-186 require oil handling facilities, pipelines, vessels, and railroads to have a state-approved oil spill contingency plan that ensures their ability to respond to major oil spills. Plan holders are required to submit changes to Ecology and updates may require a 30 day public review of the updates (Chapter 173-182-142 WAC).
