Description Companies whose vessels transit Washington State waters for arrival in Washington ports must be enrolled in a state approved contingency plan to ensure a rapid response to oil spills and other emergencies. Each company may have their own plan, or they may enroll their vessels in a Washington State approved multi-vessel contingency plan. If your vessel spills oil in Washington waters, you must implement your oil spill contingency plan, including required notifications.
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.
