Cook Inlet Geographic Response Strategies: Seward Zone

A total of 47 GRS have been developed for the Cook Inlet Seward Zone. In 2003, the workgroup selected 39 sites from the list of candidate sites for GRS development. In 2011, the Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council designated funding for the development of additional GRS and a workgroup met to identify high priority sites.

The 2 maps show 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.
