Moving the Needle on Abandoned and Derelict Vessels: Recommendations to Strengthen State and Federal Capacity to Address a Growing Threat In this panel, we will discuss and brainstorm effective strategies for implementing 38 recommendations from a Jan 14, 2020 report by the Pacific States / British Columbia (BC) Oil Spill Task Force (Task Force): Abandoned and Derelict Vessel (ADVs) Blue-Ribbon Program for Western U.S. States (Blue-Ribbon Program).
ADVs are a growing challenge for coastal states. The Blue-Ribbon Program is designed to help western states (AK, CA, HI, OR and WA) develop comprehensive ADV programs that will effectively address issues related to authority, prevention, public outreach and education, deconstruction and disposal, and funding. The Blue-Ribbon Program also contains recommendations for the federal government to help improve state/federal collaboration on this complex, expensive issue.
