Inland Geographic Response Plan Development for the Housatonic and Naugatuck Rivers in Connecticut.

Nuka Research was contracted by the US EPA to work with Connecticut communities and stakeholders around the Housatonic and Naugatuck rivers to develop Geographic Response Plans with input through a workgroup process. This project included the development of 10 GRPS providing workgroup approved oil spill response tactics. These tactics can be used by first responders or oil spill response contractors to protect environmentally sensitive areas that were identified as important by the workgroup. The process of developing these GRPs included on the ground field surveys to ensure that tactics would work as intended in the field.
