Preparedness Monitoring

The Council has monitored the operational readiness of the Alyeska Ship Escort/Response Vessel System (SERVS) and the oil shipping companies since 1992. Both the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) and the Council’s contract with Alyeska task the Council with this duty.

The Council observes, monitors, and reports on spill response drills, exercises, and training in the Prince William Sound/Northern Gulf of Alaska region to provide citizens, regulatory agencies, and oil spill responders with information about readiness as well as recommendations for improvement.
