OIL SPILL RESPONSE PLANNING FOR BIOLOGICALLY SENSITIVE AREAS

An oil spill cooperative in Santa Barbara is implementing a spill response plan designed to protect identified biologically sensitive areas in the Santa Barbara Channel. Protection systems are adapted to fit each site, and the plan is practiced through regular drills. This type of planning decreases the number of decisions that must be made after a spill and reduces both the reaction time and environmental damage.
