The Trustees have selected and approved the largest suite of Gulf of Mexico early restoration projects since the oil spill. The restoration plan includes 44 projects totaling an estimated $627 million.
The final plan is now available for the third phase of Early Restoration following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. As the largest phase of early restoration, the Phase III Early Restoration Plan proposes 44 early restoration projects and includes environmental analyses for each of them. The document also includes our proposed strategic approach to early restoration and the environmental analysis for that approach.
Thank you for your interest in the Final Programmatic and Phase III Early Restoration Plan and Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (Phase III ERP/PEIS). The document is not final at this time. When the document is available, it will be posted here and at http://www.doi.gov/deepwaterhorizon and available at public repositories across the Gulf region.
