This project will support restoration planning for the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (TIG) to carry out the restoration goals identified in the Final PDARP/PEIS, and specifically, for the LA TIG to conduct restoration planning to evaluate projects that would "Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities” and for "Nutrient Reduction (Nonpoint Source)” restoration to restore for the related DWH oil spill injuries to Louisiana. These funds will be used to develop, draft, and finalize a restoration plan and the environmental impact analyses as required by Oil Pollution Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and the Trustees' PDARP/PEIS.
