Our Mission is to represent the citizens of Cook Inlet in promoting environmentally safe marine transportation and oil facility operations in Cook Inlet.
Announcing our 2014 Annual Report
CIRCAC's 2014 Annual Report is ready and online. This year, we focused on our efforts to mitigate navigation risks in Cook Inlet, such as being a catalyst for the first comprehensive Cook Inlet Navigation Risk Assessment. The project's completion in December marked the beginning of new initiatives to implement the Risk Assessment's priority recommendations, including the formation of a Harbor Safety Committee, in which CIRCAC will also play a role.

Cook Inlet Harbor Safety Committee convening work group seeks public input 
As part of the recommendations from the Cook Inlet Risk Assessment Final Report, the Management Team created a Convening Workgroup to assist in establishing a Cook Inlet Harbor Safety Committee (CI HSC). The Convening Workgroup has drafted a CI HSC Charter that is now available for public review. Click here for more information and to download the draft charter.
