CSR-SRI: Columbia/Snake River Spill Response Initiative The Mission: to prepare for, and respond to, oil spills from the dams of the Columbia and Snake River Systems. A collaborative initiative developed by the Washington State Department of Ecology Spills Program, the United States Army Corps of Engineers, and the Chelan, Douglas, and Grant County Public Utility Districts Columbia & Snake River Projects Project Specific Spill Plans (PSSP) • Included as an annex to SPCC or as a stand-alone document • Spill Plan to use when spills occur: Call Down List (Includes Internal/External Notifications and Project Spill Response Team) Initial Incident Action Plan Kit, IAP models and blank ICS 201s, ICS 202s, HAW, Other useful forms. Project Specific-Geographic Response Plans (Deploy as appropriate ahead of the response contractors) Work Sheet for Each Project Project Name: The Dalles • • Lead Person: Date: Jim Dennis January 24, 2005 • Item 1. Identify strategies for first priority deployments ahead of Contractor responses. (Contractors are between 2- 6 hours away from Projects) • • 1. GRP 191.3, 1000 feet of boom. Deflection strategy. 2. The Dalles Marina, 500 feet of boom. Collection strategy. • Item 2. Identify type and quantity of resources needed to accomplish the strategies. • 1. While many types and kinds of boom are available, “Super Swamp Boom” was suggested as a proven tool for consideration. • Item 3. Develop a plan and time frame to purchase resources, receive and maintain training, test deployments, and create a specific annex to the Project Specific Spill Plan for Columbia River or Snake River Spills. • • 1. Equipment will be purchased and in place by July, 2006. 2. Fast Water training (EPA) will be completed by August, 2006. Strategy Maps….. a map and satellite image have been incorporated into each strategy satellite image with boom deployment drawn in GRP on-water proofing Very Important !! Ensure strategy on paper can be accomplished in reality On Going Program • Training – Fast water booming – Swift water rescue – ICS IAP Development o Drills − Deployment − Tabletop − ICS Expanding the CSR-SRI •Expanded Agency Involvement •Ecology •Corps •PUDs •WDFW •Oregon DEQ •EPA •Tribes •Public Emergency Response Groups. •Expanded Private Involvement •Commercial River Transportation Companies •Railroads •Other River Located Oil Handling Facilities Expanding the CSR-SRI •Website as a tool •Information and education •Resources for responders •Training Opportunities •Project Site Specific Plans (PSSP) Expanding the CSR-SRI •Website as a tool Oil Spill Equipment Cache Program Ecology Grants for Response Equipment Purchases and Training Each cache is given to selected response agency for Columbia and Snake River deployment during oil spill emergencies. The caches can be moved and used as necessary. •Okanogan DEM •Chelan DEM •Chelan PUD •Douglas PUD •Grant PUD •Tri County Hazmat •Port of Kennewick •Bingen Fire Department •Yakama Nation •Asotin FD 1 •Port of Camas/Washougal •Wahkiakum PUD •Port of Chinook •Port of Cathlamet The Future CSR-SRI • Develop Joint Training and Drills Programs between CSR-SRI Members • Establish Mutual Aid Agreements for Deployments • Make Equipment Caches Available to all CSR-SRI Members. • Develop a More Formal Communications System (regular meetings, updated website) • Explore Other Ideas and Concepts Comments and Questions • So what do you think ?? • What are the next steps ? • When are we going to take those steps ?
