This manual addresses the response of the protection, cleanup, and restoration phases of spilled oil endangering or contaminating tidal marshlands. The manual follows a step by step approach to response actions. Common to both the cleanup and protective phases are a gathering of general information, knowledge of the characteristics of the spilled oil, identification of the sensitivity and unique features of the endangered marshland, and an investigation of any threat against public and personnel safety. Decisionmaking criteria are provided for both the protection and cleanup. Special attention is given to the cleanup phase which involves foot and vehicular traffic in the marsh and which may lead to serious adverse impacts. The user is presented with criteria for termination of activities for both protection and cleanup activities. Final sections discuss requirements for debris disposal and restoration of the damaged marsh. Recovery includes evaluation of the need for restoration versus natural recovery, and restoration techniques.
