To ensure that the State?s activities in response to an oil spill are complete and well integrated with other efforts, the spill office should regularly update the state plan and include references to sections of the regional plan and area plans that cover required elements.
The Draft State plan was shared with external partners and the Review Subcommittee of the State Interagency Oil Spill Committee per Government Code 8574.10. This office reviewed submitted comments, provided responses, and incorporating them into the plan. The State Oil Spill Contingency Plan was approved by the Administrator on December 15, 2009 and can be found by searching the DFG Document library at http://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/documents/ under State Oil Spill Contingency Plan. (See 2009-041 p. 132)
Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
