Opportunity to Provide Input on Restoration for the Pipeline P00547 Oil Spill in Southern California
January 9, 2023
The public is invited to two virtual meetings to learn about efforts to assess the impacts of an October 2021 oil spill and solicit input for potential restoration actions. The meetings, scheduled for January 25, 2023, will be hosted by State and federal trustee agencies for natural resources impacted by the Pipeline P00547 oil spill off the coast of Huntington Beach in Southern California.
The January 25 meetings will provide current information on the assessments of spill impacts to birds, marine mammals and fish, the water column, marsh, rocky intertidal, subtidal and sandy beach habitats, and human-use activities.
The public is also invited to submit recommendations for restoration concepts aimed to protect, restore, and enhance resources potentially impacted by the spill. On October 3, 2022, a factsheet was released inviting the public to submit restoration ideas or project proposals that aim to protect, restore, and enhance resources potentially impacted by the spill.
Agencies will host two virtual meetings on Jan. 25, at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. PST. Click a link below to register for one of the timeslots:
