Geographic Response Plans (GRPs) are geographic-specific response plans for oil
spills to water. They include response strategies tailored to a specific beach,
shore, or waterway and meant to minimize impact on sensitive resources
threatened by the spill. Each GRP has two main priorities:
GRPs are developed in partnership with Washington State Department of Ecology, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (OR-DEQ), the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as part of the Region 10 Response Team (RRT) and Northwest Area Committee (NWAC).
The following interactive map shows all GRPs currently developed for Washington State; both marine and inland areas. A listing of Washington State GRPs is also provided below.
