On March 24, 1989, the Exxon Valdez ran aground in Prince William Sound, spilling about 11 million gallons of crude oil.  No one wants to see such an event again.  The lessons learned from the Exxon Valdez have brought many changes and extra planning and protection, not just in Prince William Sound but throughout the state.
