Description This four-page focus sheet describes the Department of Ecology's progress in implementing the 2018 Strengthening Oil Transportation Safety Act, which requires Ecology to focus on oils that may submerge or sink in water, and to protect the Salish Sea from oil spills by promoting the safety of marine transportation. The legislation also applies the barrel tax to oil moved by pipelines.
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.
