Project Year and Number: 1993: 93059

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Paul Rudershausen

Research Location: All Spill Affected Areas

Restoration Category: Habitat Protection

Injured Resources Addressed: Not Specified

Abstract: Public comment, to date, has overwhelmingly supported use of the Habitat Protection and Acquisition option as a method of preventing further harm to, and assisting the recovery of, natural resources and services injured by the oil spill. Numerous proposals or nominations of lands believed to be deserving of protection or acquisition were received from the public as FY 93 work plan proposals.

In response, where an imminent threat is determined to exist, this project accelerates important elements of the Habitat Protection and Acquisition option within the context of maintaining the integrity of the overall Restoration Planning process and accompanying compliance with NEPA and other legal and regulatory requirements. An imminent threat is defined as a change in land use which (1) is likely to foreclose restoration options, and (2) can reasonably be expected to occur before adoption and implementation of the Restoration Plan.
