This document presents an overview of inland oil spill response in aquatic environments (freshwater rivers and streams, lakes and ponds, wetlands and estuarine water bodies and their associated shores and banksides) identifying similarities to marine response and highlighting unique issues pertinent to inland spills. The document addresses the response phase of inland incidents, where actions are undertaken to ensure safety, minimize the immediate spread and threat of a spill and deploy techniques to clean-up spilled oil in aquatic environments. It does not address spills to terrestrial environments and the possible remediation actions which may be considered where oil has contaminated the ground.
