With the increased exposure to inland oil spills planning is not only mandated, but also critical to successful and safe operations. WRI has the experience and technology to create thorough Comprehensive Oil Spill Response Plans, Facility Response Plans, and Geographic Response Plans. GRP clients include BNSF, Montana Rail Link, Idaho DEQ, and EPA Region 10.
Currently, WRI has written plans for the:

- South Fork of Clearwater
- Missouri Rivers
We use state-of-the-art GIS databasing, data-collection and the expertise that comes from years spent on the river to create response plans that are thorough and practical. To help control our costs, the WRI GIS team has developed an automation process that eliminates the need to touch data more than necessary.

“I have been in the whitewater industry for 8 years and own a kayaking and rafting company in Missoula Montana. Safety is my number one concern whether it’s kayaking with my buddies on a Class V run or guiding clients on Class I. Zoo Town Surfers did a class with the WRI and it not only brought us together as a team but gave my guides the skills that are required and expected in our industry. These guys have been leading the industry in river safety and will continue for years to come! ”
