Description The 2006 Legislature provided Ecology $1.45 million in supplemental funding to put mobile spill response and protection equipment in communities across the
state. Nearly two-thirds of the equipment will be placed in the Puget Sound region, a total investment of about $950,000. The equipment helps local governments
– who often are the first responders to an oil spill – deploy oil containment boom, absorbent materials and take other timely response measures that can greatly
reduce the environmental and economic impacts of an oil spill. As of Dec. 22, 2006, xxx, Ecology had received 91 grant applications and approved 41 requests for
equipment. The agency already had delivered approximately 20 response equipment trailers to local governments in Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Pierce, San Juan and
Whatcom counties. The average cost for each portable trailer, including training for hundreds of local responders, is about $20,000. Distribution of all equipment
should be complete by June 30, 2007.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
