The purpose of the Marine Oil Spill Contingency Plan is to coordinate the State's response to marine oil spills by establishing requirements and procedures for the notification for, assessment of and response to releases or threats of a release of oil. This plan sets forth the roles and responsibilities of the DEP, potentially responsible parties, governmental agencies and the public in response actions.
