AN INVESTIGATION OF THE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL OIL SPILL CONTINGENCY PLANS FOR THE LONG ISLAND SOUND AREA
The report concerns itself with the Federal, States (both New York and Connecticut) and local oil spill contingency plans for the Long Island Sound area. The different contingency plans were investigated for the following items: The legal authority for the establishment of each plan, the geographic area of jurisdiction of each plan, the operational procedures of the plans for dealing with oil spill incidents, and the possible interaction of one contingency plan with another. The prime object of this project is the determination of the possible areas in which the State Legislature can take action to improve the effectiveness of these plans and to minimize unnecessary and costly duplication of effort.
