Description In Washington State, 820 miles of pipelines carry about 7 billion gallons of petroleum products through local communities. A spill could significantly impact public, environmental, and economic health, as well as cultural and historical resources.
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.
