Site Selection

The workgroup selected 18 sites for GRS development with their locations shown on the map at left. The site site selection matrix and site selection key summarize the resources at risk for each site. The site selection process involved a consideration of environmental sensitivity, risk of being impacted from a water borne spill; and feasibility of successfully protecting the site with existing technology.

The Geographic Response Strategies (GRS) and tactics described on this site and in the subarea plans, are NOT prescriptive in nature. They are recommended deployment configurations for initial responders. They can, and should, be adjusted to fit the current situation and environmental conditions.

A detailed description of the site selection process can be found here or by following the link under the Quick Links section.
