REGION NINE POLLUTION CONTINGENCY PLAN

The plan covers all the coastal waters of California, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the U.S. Trust Territories of the Pacific Islands. It supplements the National Oil and Hazardous Materials Pollution Contingency Plan and provides for coordinated response by Federal agencies to polluting spills of oil and hazardous materials to minimize damages. It assigns responsibilities to the concerned Federal agencies; establishes a system of surveillance and notification; prescribes pollution cleanup and control procedures; designates regional response centers and on-scene commanders to coordinate and direct response operations; lists available response equipment and supplies; establishes a regional response team and other trained pollution response forces; and describes restrictions on use of dispersants and other chemicals. It also provides for coordination among Federal, state, local, and non-governmental response systems. (Author)
