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), experienced a significant explosion, fire, and subsequent sinking 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 into the environment as a result of the spill. The Trustees conducted the natural resource damage assessment (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 City Zip 31115 Five Rivers Boulevard Spanish Fort ........................... 36527 11300 U.S. Highway 98 .......... 5555 Grelot Road ................... Fairhope .................................. Mobile ..................................... 36532 36609 natural resource injuries and losses and to determine the actions required to compensate the public for those injuries and losses. The 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 completion of restoration to baseline (the resource quality and conditions that would exist if the spill had not occurred). The Deepwater Horizon Trustees are: • U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), as represented by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Bureau of Land Management; • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), on behalf of the U.S. Department of Commerce; • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA); • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); • 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 • State of Texas: Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas General Land Office, and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. On April 4, 2016, the Trustees reached and finalized a settlement of their natural resource damage claims with BP in a Consent Decree approved by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Pursuant to that Consent Decree, restoration projects in the Alabama Restoration Area are now chosen and managed by the AL TIG. The AL TIG comprises the following Trustees: State of Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Geological Survey of Alabama; DOI; NOAA; EPA; and USDA. Background In preparation for the draft RP III/EA planning process, on December 19, 2018, the AL TIG posted a notice on two websites: the NOAA Gulf Spill web portal at http:// www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov, and the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Project Portal at http:// www.alabamacoastalrestoration.org/. The notice requested public input on restoration project ideas in the Alabama Restoration Area, asking the public to focus their input on ‘‘Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities’’ and ‘‘Birds’’ restoration types The AL TIG reviewed and considered these restoration project ideas.

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), experienced a significant explosion, fire, and subsequent 
sinking 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 
into the environment as a result of the spill.
    The Trustees conducted the natural resource damage assessment 
(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

resource injuries and losses and to determine the actions required to

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 completion of restoration to baseline (the 
resource quality and conditions that would exist if the spill had not 
occurred).
    The Deepwater Horizon Trustees are:
     U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), as represented by 
the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Bureau 
of Land Management;
     National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), on

General Land Office, and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
    On April 4, 2016, the Trustees reached and finalized a settlement 
of their natural resource damage claims with BP in a Consent Decree 
approved by the United States District Court for the Eastern District 
of Louisiana. Pursuant to that Consent Decree, restoration projects in 
the Alabama Restoration Area are now chosen and managed by the AL TIG. 
The AL TIG comprises the following Trustees: State of Alabama 
Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Geological Survey 
of Alabama; DOI; NOAA; EPA; and USDA.

Background

    In preparation for the draft RP III/EA planning process, on 
December 19, 2018, the AL TIG posted a notice on two websites: the NOAA 
Gulf Spill web portal at http://www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov, and 
the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Project 
Portal at http://www.alabamacoastalrestoration.org/. The notice 
requested public input on restoration project ideas in the Alabama 
Restoration Area, asking the public to focus their input on ``Provide 
and Enhance Recreational Opportunities'' and ``Birds'' restoration 
types The AL TIG reviewed and considered these restoration project 
ideas.

Overview of the AL TIG Draft RP III/EA

    The draft RP III/EA is being released in accordance with OPA NRDA 
regulations found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 15 CFR 
part 990, NEPA and its implementing regulations found at 40 CFR parts 
1500-1508, the Final PDARP/PEIS, and the Consent Decree. The draft RP 
III/EA provides OPA and NEPA analyses for a reasonable range of 
alternatives, addressing two restoration types: ``Provide and Enhance 
Recreational Opportunities'' and ``Birds''. The draft RP III/EA 
evaluates a total of 10 alternatives, seven of which are preferred (see 
table below). The AL TIG proposes to implement the preferred 
alternatives using approximately $26.6 million in DWH settlement funds 
in accordance with the Consent Decree.
