Prince William Sound, Copper R. Delta GRS

Site Selection

The index map at left identifies the GRS selected sites in the Copper River Delta zone. However, during the process of surveying the sites, the workgroup decided the involved elements (tides, weather, etc.) were so variable it would be difficult to develop specific enough GRS.

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.
