Every marina should have an emergency spill kit immediately available
and be prepared to handle minor fuel spills. In general, you should maintain
sufficient oil response equipment to contain the largest potential spill
at your facility. There are many commercially available pre-packaged
spill kits starting in price at about a few hundred dollars.
an alternative, you can easily make your own spill kit. A large plastic
trash can with a secure lid, filled with absorbent materials such as
pads and booms purchased from your wholesale supplier will cost you
much less. It is recommended that you keep enough booms on hand to
encircle the largest vessel at your facility (approximately 3 times
the vessel’s length.)
