Crude Awakenings: Could an Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Happen in Southern California?
Kristina Haddad (ed). In 1989, the Exxon Valdez ran aground in Alaska, spilling 11 million gallons of crude oil. If the ship had spilled its crude oil in southern California coastal waters, it would cover the beaches along the entire California coastline. In 1998, 704 tank vessels called on the Ports of Los Angeles/Long Beach, carrying 5-1/2 million barrels of oil. This report considers what is being done to ensure that such a tragedy does not occur along the shores of southern California. Concludes that oil spill prevention & response capabilities have deteriorated & a spill is likely to occur at any time. Outlines the risk criteria that must be eliminated in order to moved towards safety from disaster. Illustrations.
