Oil Spill Contingency Plans

Jan. 11, 2021 - Feb. 10, 2021, 5 p.m.

The following plan is now available for public review:

Ecology invites interested public, local and tribal governments and all others to review and comment on contingency plan updates for the 12-month phase-in requirements to Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-182 and 173-186. These rules 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. The below plan is currently undergoing a review by Ecology and may not meet all requirements of the rule update. Your comments, as well as Ecology’s review, will be considered before approving the contingency plan.

To learn more about the updates to this rule and the phase-in periods for contingency plan rule updates, please visit https://ecology.wa.gov/Regulations-Permits/Plans-policies/Contingency-planning-for-oil-industry/Rule-implementation
