Early restoration projects provides an opportunity to implement restoration projects prior to the completion of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA). Visit NOAA's website to view the projects that the Deepwater Horizon NRDA trustees are implementing for Phase 1 projects. To view details of an individual project, click the View icon view icon on the list below or click the project marker marker on the map. To highlight the location of a project from the list, click the Show on Map map icon icon.

This atlas will be updated as project information is available. If you are having technical difficulties with this page or are having trouble accessing the information, please email us.

As of January 13, 2014, 344 projects have been submitted to DEP and are included on List 1: Draft Restoration Projects in Florida. As of January 13, 2014, 200 projects are on List 2: Draft Early Restoration Projects, which represents a reduction of projects from List 1 that meet select criteria directly related to early restoration. Projects not on List 2 may still qualify for restoration related to the oil spill, but will not be considered for the early restoration funds. All lists are dynamic and are updated regularly.

List 2 projects must meet the following criteria to be eligible for early restoration funded by the Framework for Early Restoration Addressing Injuries Resulting from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill agreement:

  • project must be located in the eight county affected area;
  • address a known, suspected or potential injury related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill;
  • and meet the criteria of the Early Restoration Framework Agreement and the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.
