Cook Inlet Geographic Response Strategies: Central Zone

Central Zone Map

During the initial development phase, the workgroup developed GRS for 22 sites in the Cook Inlet Central Zone. In 2010 Lake Clark National Park and Preserve developed an additional 4 sites and revised 3 more within the Park’s boundaries. In 2011 DEC added 6 sites based on strategies deployed during a 2010 response to an oil spill in the Swanson River field.

The map shows the GRS selected sites, while the site selection matrix and site selection key summarize the resources at risk for each site. The site selection process took into consideration environmental sensitivity, risk of being impacted from a waterborne spill, and feasibility of successfully protecting the site with existing technology.

GRS Updates Pending Approval

The Geographic Response Strategies (GRS) and tactics described on this site and in the area 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.
