  • Description:
    The AL TIG has undertaken this restoration planning effort to meet the purpose of restoring those natural resources and services injured as a result of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill. For the purpose of restoring natural resources and services injured as a result of the DWH oil spill, the AL TIG needs to address the associated loss of recreational shoreline uses in Alabama. Specifically, the Trustees propose to implement compensatory restoration projects that would provide the public with additional and enhanced recreational shoreline use services in Alabama. This RP/EIS considers alternatives to restore recreational use services injured or lost along the Alabama shoreline as a result of the DWH oil spill incident and is consistent with findings presented in the Final Programmatic Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan and Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement. The RP/EIS was prepared as part of the natural resource damage assessment process and presents restoration planning efforts to the public in the wake of the DWH oil spill. These efforts include the evaluation of 10 restoration alternatives (including the no action alternative) under the Oil Pollution Act. The RP/EIS also evaluates the environmental consequences of the 10 restoration alternatives under NEPA. The AL TIG proposes to undertake further restoration planning and project implementation of the six projects identified as preferred alternatives in this RP/EIS as part of a comprehensive approach to best address the shoreline recreational loss injuries that were incurred in Alabama from the DWH oil spill. The discussed preferred restoration alternatives take place in Baldwin and Mobile counties in southern Alabama.
