Exxon Valdez oil spill area

At the Council’s January 19, 2021 meeting, the Council approved a limited extension of the oil spill area boundary eastward to incorporate the Copper River Delta and the Bering River, including its headwaters (see Resolution 21-03). Restoration activities will still occur primarily within the Spill Area.
