1.1 This guide describes methods of cleaning and remediating shorelines containing stranded oil. The primary goal of any shoreline countermeasure is to aid recovery while minimizing additional impact.
1.2 This guide describes 22 different tactics that are available for consideration. These options range from natural recovery to active intervention.
1.3 The tactics listed may not be appropriate under all possible circumstances, and multiple countermeasures may be appropriate on the same shoreline.
1.4 This guide describes technical considerations for selecting one technique or another, or both.
1.5 Selection of specific countermeasures for use during a spill response are guided by the properties of the stranded oil, the degree of oiling, shoreline accessibility, shoreline geomorphology, mobility of available equipment, oceanographic and meteorological conditions, and the presence of sensitive natural and archeological resources. It is advisable to consult with the appropriate regulatory authorities as certain response options may require government authorization and approval.
