The Area Contingency Plan (ACP) is written in conjunction with the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980. The purpose of this Plan is to meet the requirements of Section 311(j)(4) of CWA. The ACP is designed to coordinate timely and effective response by Federal On-Scene Coordinators (OSC), various Federal agencies, State and local officials, and private industry to minimize damage resulting from releases of oil or hazardous materials. The ACP includes resource information that may be utilized during a response. The Plan outlines the type of cooperative response that should be carried out by the OSC during response actions.
