The Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group has released two draft plans to address recreational use loss and ecosystem injuries in Louisiana and Gulf of Mexico caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

According to their latest announcement, both of these draft plans are consistent with the Trustees’ Programmatic Restoration Plan.

Those draft plans released are:

  • The Draft Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment: Provide and Enhance Recreational Opportunities (Draft Recreational Use Plan) which describes and proposes implementation of restoration projects intended to restore for lost recreational use opportunities.
  • The Draft Strategic Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment: Restoration of Wetlands, Coastal, and Nearshore Habitats in the Barataria Basin, Louisiana (Draft Barataria Strategic Plan) which considers a suite of restoration approaches and techniques to address ecosystem-level injuries in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Draft Barataria Strategic Plan has a 45-day public comment period.

The public is invited to attend and comment on it at the January 17 Coastal Protection Restoration Authority board meeting in Baton Rouge, and at a separate public meeting later in January in New Orleans.
