Under a global settlement reached on April 4, 2016, the Trustees released the Programmatic Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan/Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PDARP/PEIS). The settlement agreement includes a funding schedule that will extend through 2031. During this timeframe the trustees will provide many opportunities for public participation, including the opportunity to submit project ideas and proposals and to comment on draft restoration plans
Consistent with the PDARP/PEIS, the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (TIG) prepared the December 2017 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group Draft Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment #2: Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities. On July 20, 2018 the final plan was approved. The Louisiana TIG is now considering modifications to the original Lake Charles Science Center and Educational Complex (SCEC) described in the final restoration plan. The modifications being considered include co-locating within one building, the Lake Charles SCEC and the Lake Charles Children's Museum. The modification under consideration are consistent with the restoration alternatives selected in the PDARP/PEIS.
