In accordance with provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), we encourage you to view the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) for the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Restoration Plan. (available below)
This DSEIS is prepared pursuant to NEPA to assess the environmental impacts associated with NOAA proceeding to take action regarding significant new circumstances bearing on the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council's (Council) restoration efforts as assessed in the original EIS. Specifically, as the restoration funds remaining from the Exxon Valdez settlement diminish, the Council seeks a more discrete and efficient funding mechanism by which to direct the remaining funds.
Public comments on the DSEIS were accepted on or before July 19th, 2010. The comment period is now closed.
