Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


The institutional capability of the State of Oregon to manage the territorial sea under its jurisdiction recently was examined by the authors. Oil and gas development, marine mineral mining, kelp harvesting, oil spills and waste disposal were reviewed. In addition to resource and legal analyses, the study identified problems and suggested solutions for user-group conflicts, outmoded laws, gaps or overlaps in responsibility, and state and federal interagency coordination. The study's major conclusions are presented in this paper along with suggestions regarding the usefulness of such studies to other coastal states.
