Clean Harbors: Primary Response Contractor Application

The Department of Ecology invites the public and local governments, tribes, and any others, to review and comment on updated Primary Response Contractor (PRC) applications. Washington Administration Code (WAC) 173-182 requires oil-handling facilities, pipelines, railroads, and vessels to have a state-approved oil spill contingency plan that ensures their ability to respond to major oil spills. Primary Response Contractors (PRCs) are often used to help meet these requirements. Primary response contractors are companies or cooperatives with equipment and trained personnel that respond to oil spills. We approve primary response contractors to allow them to be cited in industry oil plans. These contractors maintain caches of pre-staged equipment to support a rapid, aggressive response to oil spills. This equipment is routinely tested in oil spill drills.  The following complete PRC application is now available for public review:            

Name of company: Clean Harbors
