|In Advance of Requirements
|Through the foresight of the MPA Board of Directors, significant MSRC
resource programs have been funded in advance of and often beyond
minimum regulatory requirements. Examples include the original
build-up of vessels, storage barges and response equipment as well as a
comprehensive aerial dispersant program.
In light of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon incident – and prior to any regulatory
requirement to do so – MPA
proactively funded an expansion of the capacity and proven capability of MSRC to
respond to emergency situations offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
