Geographic response plans (GRPs) guide early actions when oil spills happen. GRPs are made up of pre-identified strategies for specific areas of the state at risk from oil spills. The strategies are designed to minimize impacts to sensitive environmental, cultural, and economic resources. The state Legislature directs us to develop and routinely update these plans.
