Safe and Effective Threshold Determination Reports

January 22, 2019 - February 21, 2019

The following Safe and Effective Threshold Determination Report is now available for public review:

Interested public and local and tribal governments are invited to review and comment on required 5 year updates to industry oil spill plans. These updates are required by the state’s oil spill prevention regulations.

Washington Administration Code (WAC) Chapter 173-184 requires vessels conducting over the water transfers of oil in bulk at a given rate to have a state-approved Safe and Effective Threshold Determination Report. These reports establish the sea and weather conditions that might make it ineffective or unsafe to deploy boom at the location where oil transfer operations will be conducted.
