The measure of damages to natural resources is the cost of restoring, rehabilitating, replacing or acquiring the equivalent of the injured natural resources, compensation for the diminution in value of those natural resources pending restoration, and the reasonable costs of assessing such damages. 33 U.S.C. 2702(b)(2)(A), 2706(d)(1). All recoveries for the first two elements are to be spent implementing a restoration plan developed by the trustees. 33 U.S.C. 2706(f). Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration Planning NOAA, acting as Trustee on the public’s behalf, has conducted a natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) to determine the nature and extent of natural resource losses resulting from this incident and the restoration actions needed to restore these losses. The NRDA was conducted using the OPA NRDA regulations found at 15 CFR part 990. On the basis of data provided by the NRDA, NOAA prepared this Final Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan/Environmental Assessment (Final DARP/EA) to consider restoration alternatives and identify a selected alternative. An injury assessment conducted by NOAA determined that the primary injury resulting from this incident was to offshore benthic habitat. This conclusion is described in greater detail in the Final DARP/EA. NOAA considered various restoration alternatives to compensate the public for spill-related injuries and to restore comparable natural resource services to those that were provided by the resources injured by the spill. The selected restoration alternative identified by NOAA is an estuarine shoreline protection and salt marsh restoration project at the Texas Chenier Plain National Wildlife Refuge Complex. The project area is located in Galveston Bay, Texas. The project is designed to protect shoreline with a protective structure consisting of rip-rap habitat. The project will be designed so that salt marsh habitat will be created behind the breakwater. Prior to implementation, the project will undergo pre-project engineering to design the shoreline protection structure and the marsh. The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) has determined that the RP has exceeded its VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Jul 08, 2016 Jkt 238001 limit of liability under OPA. Therefore, the Final DARP/EA will be submitted to the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) as part of a claim for funds to implement the selected restoration project. The OSLTF is administered by the USCG and is maintained through fees paid by industry. Public Comments and NOAA’s Response NOAA prepared the Final DARP/EA after consideration of the public’s response to the Draft DARP/EA. One of the comments received was supportive of the restoration project alternatives. Other comments received asked for clarity on various points in the Draft DARP/EA and the NRDA process, questioned various aspects of the NRDA for this site, questioned the appropriateness of the selected project to the specific injury, or requested additional evaluation or monitoring by NOAA. The full text of the public comments received is provided in Appendix C to the Final DARP/EA, and NOAA’s full response to the comments received, along with a discussion of changes made to the DARP/EA in response to the comments, is provided in Appendix B to the Final DARP/EA. A brief summary of the changes made to the DARP/EA in response to the comments is as follows: • A paragraph on overlapping impacts of the DBL 152 oil spill and the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill was revised in Section 4 of the Final DARP/ EA. • A discussion was added to Section 6 of the Final DARP/EA regarding a candidate project proposed by the Louisiana Oil Spill Coordinator’s Office (LOSCO) on behalf of the Louisiana Oil Spill Natural Resource Trustees. • Clarifying language was added to Section 3 of the Final DARP/EA regarding potential injuries to water column species. Administrative Record Pursuant to the OPA NRDA regulations, NOAA has developed an Administrative Record to support its restoration planning decisions and inform the public of the basis of their decisions. Information and documents, including public comments received on the Draft DARP/EA, the Final DARP/EA, and other related restoration planning documents, are also part of the Administrative Record. The documents comprising the public record (Administrative Record) can be viewed at https:// casedocuments.darrp.noaa.gov/ southeast/dbl152/admin.html.
