SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction On April 20, 2010, the mobile offshore drilling unit Deepwater Horizon, which was being used to drill a well for BP Exploration and Production Inc. (BP), in the Macondo prospect (Mississippi Canyon 252– MC252), exploded, caught fire and subsequently sank in the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in an unprecedented volume of oil and other discharges from the rig and from the wellhead on the seabed. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill is the largest oil spill in U.S. history, discharging millions of barrels of oil over a period of 87 days. In addition, well over one million gallons of dispersants were applied to the waters of the spill area in an attempt to disperse the spilled oil. An undetermined amount of natural gas was also released to the environment as a result of the spill. The Deepwater Horizon State and Federal natural resource trustees (DWH Trustees) conducted NRDA for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill under the Oil Pollution Act 1990 (OPA; 33 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.). Pursuant to OPA, Federal and State agencies act as trustees on behalf of the public to assess natural resource injuries and losses and to determine the actions required to compensate the public for those injuries and losses. OPA further instructs the designated trustees to develop and implement a plan for the restoration, rehabilitation, replacement, or acquisition of the equivalent of the injured natural resources under their PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17975 trusteeship, including the loss of use and services from those resources from the time of injury until the time of restoration to baseline (the resource quality and conditions that would exist if the spill had not occurred) is complete. The DWH Trustees are: • U.S. Department of the Interior, as represented by the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on behalf of the U.S. Department of Commerce; • U.S. Department of Agriculture; • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; • State of Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, Oil Spill Coordinator’s Office, Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and Department of Natural Resources; • State of Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality; • State of Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Geological Survey of Alabama; • State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection and Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission; and • For the State of Texas, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas General Land Office, and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Upon completion of the NRDA, the DWH Trustees reached and finalized a settlement of their natural resource damage claims with BP in a Consent Decree 1 approved by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Pursuant to that Consent Decree, restoration projects in Alabama are now chosen and managed by the Alabama TIG. The Alabama TIG is composed of the following Trustees: • U.S. Department of the Interior, as represented by the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on behalf of the U.S. Department of Commerce; • U.S. Department of Agriculture; • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; • State of Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources; and • Geological Survey of Alabama.

Information on the Restoration Type: Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities, as well as the OPA criteria against which project ideas are being evaluated, can be found in the PDARP/PEIS (http:// www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov/ restoration-planning/gulf-plan) and in the Overview of the PDARP/PEIS (http:// www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov/ restoration-planning/gulf-plan). This restoration planning activity is occurring, in part, in accordance with the February 16, 2016, decision in Gulf Restoration Network v. Jewell, Case 1:15-cv-00191–CB–C (S.D. Ala.), in which the court enjoined the use of Deepwater Horizon early restoration funds that had been allocated to partially fund construction of a lodge and conference center at Alabama’s Gulf State Park as part of the Gulf State Park Enhancement Project, pending additional analysis under NEPA and OPA. This restoration planning activity fulfills the Federal and State natural resource trustees’ responsibilities under this court order while looking more broadly at the potential to provide restoration for lost recreational shoreline use within Alabama. Background On July 6, 2016, the Alabama TIG initiated a 30-day formal scoping and public comment period for this Final RP/EIS (81 FR 44007–44008) through a Notice of Intent (NOI) to Prepare a RP/ EIS, and to Conduct Scoping. The Alabama TIG conducted the scoping in accordance with OPA (15 CFR 990.14(d)), NEPA (40 CFR 1501.7), and State authorities. That NOI requested public input to identify restoration approaches and restoration projects that could be used to compensate the public for lost recreational use opportunities in Alabama caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Notice of availability of the Draft RP/ EIS was published in the Federal Register on December 16, 2016 (81 FR 91138). The Draft RP/EIS provided the Alabama TIG’s analysis of projects to address lost recreational shoreline use under both OPA and NEPA and identified the projects that were proposed as preferred for implementation. The Alabama TIG provided the public with 45 days to review and comment on the Draft RP/ EIS. The Alabama TIG also held public meetings in Dauphin Island, AL, and Gulf Shores, AL, to facilitate public understanding of the document and provide opportunity for public comment. The Alabama TIG actively VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 Apr 13, 2017 Jkt 241001 solicited public input through a variety of mechanisms, including convening public meetings, distributing electronic communications, and using the Trusteewide public Web site and database to share information and receive public input. The Alabama TIG considered the public comments received, which informed the Alabama TIG’s analysis of alternatives in the Final RP/EIS. A summary of the public comments received and the Alabama TIG’s responses to those comments are addressed in Chapter 9 of the Final RP/ EIS and all correspondence received are provided Appendix B. Overview of the Final PDARP/PEIS The Final RP/EIS is being released in accordance with the OPA, the NRDA regulations found at 15 CFR part 990, and the NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). In the Final RP/EIS, the Alabama TIG presents to the public their plan for providing for compensation for lost recreational shoreline use in Alabama. The Final RP/EIS presents ten individual restoration alternatives, including a no action alternative, evaluated in accordance with OPA and NEPA. The ten alternatives under the Final RP/EIS are as follows: • Alternative 1 (Preferred Alternative): Gulf State Park Lodge and Associated Public Access Amenities • Alternative 2 (Preferred Alternative): Fort Morgan Pier Rehabilitation • Alternative 3: Fort Morgan Peninsula Public Access Improvements • Alternative 4: Gulf Highlands Land Acquisition and Improvements • Alternative 5 (Preferred Alternative): Laguna Cove Little Lagoon Natural Resource Protection • Alternative 6 (Preferred Alternative): Bayfront Park Restoration and Improvements • Alternative 7 (Preferred Alternative): Dauphin Island Eco-Tourism and Environmental Education Area • Alternative 8: Mid-Island Parks and Public Beach Improvements (Parcels A, B, and C) • Alternative 9: (Preferred Alternative): Mid-Island Parks and Public Beach Improvements (Parcels B and C) • Alternative 10: No Action/Natural Recovery The Alabama TIG has examined and assessed the extent of injury and the restoration alternatives. In the Final RP/ EIS, the Alabama TIG presents to the public its plan for providing partial compensation to the public for lost recreational use in Alabama. In particular, it considers restoration approaches to help restore, replace, rehabilitate, or acquire the equivalent of PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 the lost recreational shoreline uses in Alabama. The Alabama TIG believes that the preferred alternatives in this Final RP/EIS are most appropriate for addressing lost recreational shoreline use in Alabama at this time. Additional restoration planning for lost recreational use in Alabama will occur at a later time. Next Steps In accordance with NEPA, a Federal agency must prepare a concise public Record of Decision (ROD) at the time the agency makes a decision in cases involving an EIS (40 CFR 1505.2). The Trustees will issue a ROD pursuant to the NEPA regulations at 40 CFR 1505.2 and OPA regulations at 15 CFR 990.23. The ROD for the Final RP/EIS will provide and explain the Alabama TIG’s decisions regarding the selection of the alternatives for implementation. The Alabama TIG will issue the ROD no earlier than 30 days after the Environmental Protection Agency publishes a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of the Final RP/EIS (40 CFR 1506.10). Administrative Record The documents included in the Administrative Record can be viewed electronically at the following location: http://www.doi.gov/deepwaterhorizon/ adminrecord.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Introduction

    On April 20, 2010, the mobile offshore drilling unit Deepwater 
Horizon, which was being used to drill a well for BP Exploration and 
Production Inc. (BP), in the Macondo prospect (Mississippi Canyon 252-
MC252), exploded, caught fire and subsequently sank in the Gulf of 
Mexico, resulting in an unprecedented volume of oil and other 
discharges from the rig and from the wellhead on the seabed. The 
Deepwater Horizon oil spill is the largest oil spill in U.S. history, 
discharging millions of barrels of oil over a period of 87 days. In 
addition, well over one million gallons of dispersants were applied to 
the waters of the spill area in an attempt to disperse the spilled oil. 
An undetermined amount of natural gas was also released to the 
environment as a result of the spill.
    The Deepwater Horizon State and Federal natural resource trustees 
(DWH Trustees) conducted NRDA for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill under 
the Oil Pollution Act 1990 (OPA; 33 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.). Pursuant to 
OPA, Federal and State agencies act as trustees on behalf of the public 
to assess natural resource injuries and losses and to determine the 
actions required to compensate the public for those injuries and 
losses. OPA further instructs the designated trustees to develop and 
implement a plan for the restoration, rehabilitation, replacement, or 
acquisition of the equivalent of the injured natural resources under 
their trusteeship, including the loss of use and services from those 
resources from the time of injury until the time of restoration to 
baseline (the resource quality and conditions that would exist if the 
spill had not occurred) is complete.
    The DWH Trustees are:
     U.S. Department of the Interior, as represented by the 
National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service;
     National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on behalf 
of the U.S. Department of Commerce;

and Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission; and
     For the State of Texas, Texas Parks and Wildlife 
Department, Texas General Land Office, and Texas Commission on 
Environmental Quality.
    Upon completion of the NRDA, the DWH Trustees reached and finalized 
a settlement of their natural resource damage claims with BP in a 
Consent Decree \1\ approved by the United States District Court for the 
Eastern District of Louisiana. Pursuant to that Consent Decree, 
restoration projects in Alabama are now chosen and managed by the

in the Overview of the PDARP/PEIS (http://www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov/restoration-planning/gulf-plan).
    This restoration planning activity is occurring, in part, in 
accordance with the February 16, 2016, decision in Gulf Restoration 
Network v. Jewell, Case 1:15-cv-00191-CB-C (S.D. Ala.), in which the 
court enjoined the use of Deepwater Horizon early restoration funds 
that had been allocated to partially fund construction of a lodge and 
conference center at Alabama's Gulf State Park as part of the Gulf 
State Park Enhancement Project, pending additional analysis under NEPA 
and OPA. This restoration planning activity fulfills the Federal and 
State natural resource trustees' responsibilities under this court 
order while looking more broadly at the potential to provide 
restoration for lost recreational shoreline use within Alabama.

Background

    On July 6, 2016, the Alabama TIG initiated a 30-day formal scoping 
and public comment period for this Final RP/EIS (81 FR 44007-44008) 
through a Notice of Intent (NOI) to Prepare a RP/EIS, and to Conduct 
Scoping. The Alabama TIG conducted the scoping in accordance with OPA 
(15 CFR 990.14(d)), NEPA (40 CFR 1501.7), and State authorities. That 
NOI requested public input to identify restoration approaches and 
restoration projects that could be used to compensate the public for 
lost recreational use opportunities in Alabama caused by the Deepwater 
Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Notice of availability of the Draft RP/EIS was published in the 
Federal Register on December 16, 2016 (81 FR 91138). The Draft RP/EIS 
provided the Alabama TIG's analysis of projects to address lost 
recreational shoreline use under both OPA and NEPA and identified the 
projects that were proposed as preferred for implementation. The 
Alabama TIG provided the public with 45 days to review and comment on 
the Draft RP/EIS. The Alabama TIG also held public meetings in Dauphin 
Island, AL, and Gulf Shores, AL, to facilitate public understanding of 
the document and provide opportunity for public comment. The Alabama 
TIG actively solicited public input through a variety of mechanisms, 
including convening public meetings, distributing electronic 
communications, and using the Trustee-wide public Web site and database 
to share information and receive public input. The Alabama TIG 
considered the public comments received, which informed the Alabama 
TIG's analysis of alternatives in the Final RP/EIS. A summary of the 
public comments received and the Alabama TIG's responses to those 
comments are addressed in Chapter 9 of the Final RP/EIS and all 
correspondence received are provided Appendix B.

Overview of the Final PDARP/PEIS

    The Final RP/EIS is being released in accordance with the OPA, the 
NRDA regulations found at 15 CFR part 990, and the NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 
et seq.).
    In the Final RP/EIS, the Alabama TIG presents to the public their 
plan for providing for compensation for lost recreational shoreline use 
in Alabama. The Final RP/EIS presents ten individual restoration 
alternatives, including a no action alternative, evaluated in 
accordance with OPA and NEPA. The ten alternatives under the Final RP/
EIS are as follows:

 Alternative 1 (Preferred Alternative): Gulf State Park Lodge 
and Associated Public Access Amenities
 Alternative 2 (Preferred Alternative): Fort Morgan Pier 
Rehabilitation
 Alternative 3: Fort Morgan Peninsula Public Access 
Improvements
 Alternative 4: Gulf Highlands Land Acquisition and 
Improvements
 Alternative 5 (Preferred Alternative): Laguna Cove Little 
Lagoon Natural Resource Protection
 Alternative 6 (Preferred Alternative): Bayfront Park 
Restoration and Improvements
 Alternative 7 (Preferred Alternative): Dauphin Island Eco-
Tourism and Environmental Education Area
 Alternative 8: Mid-Island Parks and Public Beach Improvements 
(Parcels A, B, and C)
 Alternative 9: (Preferred Alternative): Mid-Island Parks and 
Public Beach Improvements (Parcels B and C)
 Alternative 10: No Action/Natural Recovery

    The Alabama TIG has examined and assessed the extent of injury and 
the restoration alternatives. In the Final RP/EIS, the Alabama TIG 
presents to the public its plan for providing partial compensation to 
the public for lost recreational use in Alabama. In particular, it 
considers restoration approaches to help restore, replace, 
rehabilitate, or acquire the equivalent of the lost recreational 
shoreline uses in Alabama. The Alabama TIG believes that the preferred 
alternatives in this Final RP/EIS are most appropriate for addressing 
lost recreational shoreline use in Alabama at this time. Additional 
restoration planning for lost recreational use in Alabama will occur at 
a later time.

Next Steps

    In accordance with NEPA, a Federal agency must prepare a concise 
public Record of Decision (ROD) at the time the agency makes a decision 
in cases involving an EIS (40 CFR 1505.2). The Trustees will issue a 
ROD pursuant to the NEPA regulations at 40 CFR 1505.2 and OPA 
regulations at 15 CFR 990.23. The ROD for the Final RP/EIS will provide 
and explain the Alabama TIG's decisions regarding the selection of the 
alternatives for implementation. The Alabama TIG will issue the ROD no 
earlier than 30 days after the Environmental Protection Agency 
publishes a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability 
of the Final RP/EIS (40 CFR 1506.10).

Administrative Record

    The documents included in the Administrative Record can be viewed 
electronically at the following location: http://www.doi.gov/deepwaterhorizon/adminrecord.
