Description In 2015, the Oil Transportation Safety Act required the Department of Ecology to evaluate and assess vessel traffic management and vessel traffic safety within and near the mouth of the Columbia River. The Act directed Ecology to consult with tribes and stakeholders and determine: 1) the need for tug escorts for vessels transporting oil as cargo, 2) tug capabilities to achieve safe escort, and 3) the best achievable protection for vessels transporting oil as cargo. This report describes the study, its findings, and Ecology's recommendations.
