Since its inception, Cook Inlet RCAC has taken the lead for citizen review of oil spill contingency plans, and considers these reviews and recommendations to be some of its most fundamental responsibilities. Highlights of this review program include:

  • Compiled Contingency Planning in Cook Inlet: A Review of Process and Efficacy that led to development of internal review protocols.
  • Reviewed over 100 separate oil spill contingency plans for vessels and facilities.
  • Appointed to task force that recommended contingency plan regulations for non-tank vessels and obtained additional funds to incorporate these plans into review process.
