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 has prepared the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group Phase 2 Draft Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment #1.1: Queen Bess Island Restoration. The Draft Restoration Plan #1.1 evaluates two alternatives for restoration of bird habitat, plus a no action alternative. The preferred alternative would create 30 acres of brown pelican habitat and 7 acres of tern and skimmer habitat. The total estimated cost of the preferred alternative is $18.71 million. This includes an estimated $2 million in engineering and design expended in line with the Phase 1 Final Restoration Plan 1, and $16,710,000 being sought for construction, construction oversight, operations, maintenance, monitoring, adaptive management, and any future engineering and design costs.
