The Gulf Oil Spill

When oil continued spilling from the Deepwater Horizon platform in the Gulf of Mexico throughout the spring and summer of 2010, Gov. Bev Perdue and the N.C. Department of Crime Control and Public Safety were concerned about any potential impacts to North Carolina. While forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicted a remote chance that oil could threaten the North Carolina coast, state government agencies wanted to be absolutely sure that they were ready for any disaster that may impact the state. That is why various state and federal agencies met actively for weeks to discuss and plan the state's response if oil from spill were to reach the coast.

Who is Responsible for What
According to the state's oil spill response plan, the U.S. Coast Guard is the lead agency in charge of response if oil should ever threaten North Carolina's coastal waters. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is the lead for threats to inland waters. The N.C. Department of Crime Control and Public Safety's Emergency Management Division is the lead state response agency while the Department of Environment and Natural Resources would be the lead technical advisory group for any response efforts. For more information about North Carolina's response plan, download the fact sheet.
