Grays Harbor Vessel Traffic Risk Assessment (GHVTRA)
We received funding in the 2017-2019 biennium to conduct a vessel traffic risk assessment for Grays Harbor. This builds on our previous work for the Columbia River, Salish Sea, and the 2014 Marine and Rail Oil Transportation Study. The purpose for doing this type of study is to assess:
- Baseline and changing oil spill risks, including identifying measures that could help reduce the risks of oil spills.
- Oil spill response preparedness, including identifying baseline response capability.
This study provides us with the opportunity to:
- Document current baseline of oil spill prevention and preparedness in Grays Harbor.
- Develop regionally specific recommendations for improvement.
