Program Descriptions


This program provides revenue to the Department of Fish and Wildlife, which is deposited into the Oil Spill Prevention and Administration Fund. Fees are collected on all crude oil and petroleum products received in California via marine pipelines and terminals. The prevention and administration fees provide funding to implement oil spill prevention programs and reimburse the member agencies of the State Interagency Oil Spill Committee for costs arising from the implementation of this program. Funding is also provided to implement, install, and maintain emergency programs, equipment, and facilities to respond to, contain, and cleanup oil spills.
