ABSTRACT

Concise Environmental Assessement (EA) for Emergency Restoration of Seagrass Impacts from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Response   [open pdf - 421KB]

"The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Restoration Center proposes to conduct emergency restoration in the Gulf of Mexico to restore seagrasses that were injured during the response to the DWH Oil Spill. In April 2010, an accident at the Mississippi Canyon 252 Deepwater Horizon drilling site caused a huge spill of oil in the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf). The oil release occurred in very deep Federal waters but spread to coastal areas and had impacts to marine and coastal resources in ecosystems along the coastal waters of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas."
