Portland Area Work Group

The Portland Area work Group is comprised of members from DEP's Division of Response Services, U.S. Coast Guard, Portland area oil terminals, local oil spill response organizations and other state and local agencies. The group formed in 2007 and its intent is to ensure that all members of the local spill response community have access to the best available information on response strategies, environmental sensitivities and local conditions, especially for the Fore River area. The group also will share information on exercises and drills, and lessons learned from them. The documents produced by this group are a work in progress, and continue to evolve as we work on these issues.

For further information regarding the Portland Area Work Group please contact Ginger McMullin at the Maine Department of Environmental Protection: (207) 822-6352
