CIRCAC Recertified through 2019

The U.S. Coast Guard has recertified CIRCAC to continue as Cook Inlet’s alternative voluntary advisory group permitted under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. CIRCAC received the news in a letter dated August 2.

Since its creation in 1990 under OPA 90, CIRCAC has consistently been recertified without exception. In his letter, Rear Admiral M. T. Bell, Commander of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Seventeenth District, cited the importance of industry, government and multi-organization involvement as key to managing Cook Inlet’s environmental concerns.

The letter authorizes CIRCAC’s continued operations through August 31, 2019. To read the full announcement, click here.
