Geographic Response Plans (GRPs)
Published and maintained separately as annexes to the
Northwest Area Contingency Plan, Geographic Response Plans
(GRPs) are part of the hierarchy of plans that guide responses
to oil spills in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Each GRP is
written for a specific area (for example a river, a lake, or
section of Puget Sound), and includes tactical response
strategies tailored to a particular shore or waterway at risk of
injury from oil. GRPs have two main objectives:
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).
