Requirements for response and protection strategies.

(1) Plan holders shall have methods to track and contain spilled oil and enhance the recovery and removal operations that are described in the plan.
(2) Each plan shall include a description of how environmental protection will be achieved, including:
(a) Protection of sensitive shoreline and island habitat by excluding, diverting, deflecting, collecting, or blocking oil movement;
(b) The plan shall include a description of the sensitive areas and develop strategies to protect the resources, including information on natural resources, coastal and aquatic habitat types and sensitivity by season, breeding sites, presence of state or federally listed endangered or threatened species, and presence of commercial and recreational species, physical geographic features, including relative isolation of coastal regions, beach types, and other geological characteristics;
(i) Identification of sensitive resources will not be limited to surface and shoreline species at risk from floating oil spills but will also include water column and benthic species at risk from sunken, submerged, or nonfloating oil spills.
(ii) Additional nonfloating oils considerations include identification of waterway depths, water density, sediment load, sea floor or river bottom types, and response options based on those factors.
(c) Identification of public resources, including public beaches, water intakes, drinking water supplies, and marinas;
(d) Identification of shellfish resources and methods to protect those resources;
(e) Identification of significant economic resources to be protected in the geographic area covered by the plan; and
(f) Each facility with the potential to impact a "sole source" aquifer or public drinking water source must identify the types of substrate and geographical extent of sensitive sites.
(3) The GRPs have been developed to meet these requirements and plans may refer to the NWACP to meet these requirements. If approved GRPs do not exist in the NWACP, plan holders will work with ecology to determine alternative sensitive areas to protect.
(4) Each plan shall identify potential initial command post locations.
