2013-13249 Notice of Intent to Prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for a Phase III Early Restoration Plan and Early Restoration Project Types, and to Conduct Scoping Meetings

The Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment Trustees (Trustees) are pleased to announce their intent to prepare a PEIS under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to evaluate the environmental consequences of early restoration project types, as well as the early restoration projects that the Trustees intend to propose in an upcoming Phase III Draft Early Restoration Plan (DERP). The Trustees intend to evaluate early restoration project types programmatically in the PEIS in order to allow the Trustees to better analyze cumulative effects of early restoration, and to tier NEPA analyses for future early restoration plans to the PEIS, where appropriate.

Development of the PEIS is beginning with a public scoping period. Your input and engagement are important to this planning process.

Interested individuals, organizations, and agencies are encouraged to provide comments regarding the scope, content, and any significant issues the Trustees should consider in the PEIS.
