Mission Statement


The State of Alaska is represented in the Oil Spill Task Force by the Department of Environmental Conservation. Its Division of Spill Prevention and Response (SPAR) prevents spills of oil and hazardous substances, prepares for when a spill occurs and responds rapidly to protect human health and the environment. Alaskans have made significant progress in the safe handling, storage, and transportation of oil and chemicals and the cleanup of historical contamination.
