The Oil Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) Committee works to minimize the risks and impacts associated with oil transportation by reviewing and recommending strong spill prevention and response measures, adequate contingency planning, and effective regulations. OSPR reviews oil spill response plans (contingency plans); monitors state and federal laws and regulations; monitors and participates in oil spill drills; and investigates developments in prevention, containment, response, and cleanup technology.
OSPR meetings are open to the public, with teleconferencing available. Please contact the council’s offices for the call-in numbers. Anchorage office: 907-277-7222 Valdez office: 907-834-5000
