Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation: Spill Prevention and Response [website]   [open html - 14KB]

"The mission of the Division of Spill Prevention and Response is to prevent, respond and ensure the cleanup of unauthorized discharges of oil and hazardous substances. The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation's Division of Spill Prevention and Response (SPAR) is responsible for protecting Alaska's land, waters, and air from oil and hazardous substance spills. Alaskans have made a concerted effort to prevent and clean up spills. Significant progress has been made in the safe handling, storage and transportation of oil and chemicals and the cleanup of historic contamination. We will never totally eliminate the risk of spills, but we are constantly learning how to better manage that risk." This website also includes information on several programs administered by SPAR.
