CLEAN UP OF OIL SPILL

Cleanup and Assessment Technique (CAT)

Cleanup and Assessment Technique (CAT) is a simple and comprehensive way to perform a survey of an affected environment. At Paradigm Environmental System Consultants Limited we use this systematic approach and standardized terminology to collect data on shoreline oiling conditions and to support decision-making for shoreline cleanup. CAT is flexible in its scale of surveys and in the detail of data sets collected.

CAT is part of the response, and outpaces operations. This process continues past the initial assessment to verify cleanup effectiveness and conduct final evaluations. The CAT process uses eight steps:

  1. Conduct reconnaissance survey
  2. Segment the environment
  3. Assign teams and conduct environmental surveys and sampling contaminations
  4. Develop cleanup guidelines and endpoints
  5. Submit reports and sketches for planning
  6. Monitor effectiveness of cleanup
  7. Post cleanup inspections
  8. Do final evaluation of cleanup activities

Our CAT teams are trained in techniques, procedures, and terminology of environment assessment. Team members have a thorough understanding of the response goals and objectives and will consider safety concerns in cleanup recommendations.

The responsibilities of our CAT team include:

  • Evaluate oiling conditions
  • Factor in shoreline types
  • Identify sensitive resources
  • Determine need for cleanup
  • Recommend cleanup methods and endpoints

Place constraints on cleanup if necessary, due to ecological, economic, or cultural concerns.
