Natural Resource Damage Assessment & Restoration
Anyone responsible for spilling oil into state waters is liable for the injuries caused to publicly-owned natural resources. Ecology processes the damage assessments and sends the information to the Assistant Attorney General, who then sends a claim to the responsible party. The money collected from damage assessments is deposited in the Coastal Protection Fund, which is used to fund restoration projects.
Meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
