DECISIONS FOR DELAWARE; SEA GRANT LOOKS AT OIL SPILLS

Policies, procedures, and jurisdictions for the prevention, control, and cleanup of oil spills are numerous and overlapping. Since spilled oil does not respect state boundary lines, these problems are important to citizens of both New Jersey and Delaware. This report is intended to stimulate thoughtful discussion of the issue and to provide new or over-looked data and perspectives so that you can make your own decisions on this critical matter. Here are the decisions to be made: Which resources of the estuary do we want to protect when a spill occurs? Who decides which resources to protect and how is the decision reached? May we reasonably expect that we can protect what we want to protect? How much will the protection cost and who is going to pay for it? Who will devise and execute a plan of protection? Should we evaluate other ways of getting crude oil to the refineries?
