The Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group has released its Draft Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment #1.1: Restoration of Queen Bess Island. The draft plan is consistent with the Trustees’ Programmatic Restoration Plan and proposes activities for restoring natural resources and services injured or lost as a result in Louisiana caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

We will hold a public meeting on January 3, 2019 at 9:30 a.m., in association with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission meeting at the Wildlife and Fisheries Headquarters Building, 200 Quail Drive, Baton Rouge, LA, 70808. Verbal comments of the draft restoration plan will be taken during this meeting.

Comments can be submitted online or mailed:
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
P.O. Box 49567
Atlanta, Georgia 30345

The draft plan is available for public review and comment through January 22, 2019. After the public comment period ends, the LA TIG will review, consider, and address public comments before releasing a final plan and environmental assessment.
