Site Selection

This website is being used by a workgroup to develop Geographic Response Strategies(GRS) to protect sensitive coastal environments in the West B Zone of the Aleutian Islands from the impacts of spilled oil. The West B Zone is part of the Aleutian Islands Subarea and extends from Amchitka Pass to Attu Island. The site selection matrix and site selection key summarize the resources at risk for each site.

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.
