Research Location: Prince William Sound
Restoration Category: General Restoration
Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified
Abstract: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Restoration Center (RC) proposes to establish a new funding opportunity for Prince William Sound coastal communities to help them prevent small but damaging toxic releases originating from harbors and marinas. This opportunity will build upon existing resources and knowledge and provide communities with a long serving set of methods for handling small spills and re-engage an already informed group of concerned citizens to help run the program after the five years of EVOS funding is completed. This effort will review past EVOS assistance to harbors ensuring that past EVOS expenditures for equipment are utilized to the maximum efficiency, identify technology advancements that can improve current activities in the marinas, and create a local investment and ownership in the success of chosen projects. The purpose of this project will be to protect marine resources negatively affected in EVOS from future aggravation and pollution.
