Class 4 marinas are not required to submit a written spill response plan for our approval, but in most cases, a written response plan will help owners and operators comply with our rules. We strongly recommend that each facility develop a written plan.
Response plans include this information:
- Initial actions list
- Required notifications and additional contact information
- Emergency shutdown procedures
- Facility description and site plan
- Response equipment and equipment maintenance program
- Sensitive areas
- Waste disposal
- Material safety data sheets (MSDS)
- Semi-annual reporting requirements
- Plan review and update
Our spill response guide for Class 4 facilities
will help you develop a response plan for your facility.
The incentive-based Clean Marina program promotes best practices for pollution prevention. When marinas meet the qualifications for a Clean Marina, they may join the ranks of certified clean marinas in Washington.
We are a member of the Pacific Oil Spill Prevention Education Team (POSPET), which develops "Spills Aren't Slick" materials to promote spill reporting. These materials include fuel tags, stickers, rack cards, and metal signs.
