NOAA DAMAGE ASSESSMENT, REMEDIATION AND RESTORATION PROGRAM (DARRP)


Information about the DARRP Program in Louisiana

Two members of NOAA’s Damage Assessment, Remediation, and Restoration Program (DARRP) are co-located in the Louisiana Sea Grant Building at LSU and act as trustees for natural resources in Louisiana on behalf of the public. DARRP collaborates with federal, state, and tribal entities and also works with cleanup agencies (such as EPA), local organizations, the public, and those responsible for the incident to:

  • protect coastal and marine natural resources;
  • respond to discharges of oil and hazardous substances;
  • assess risks and injuries to natural resources; and
  • restore injured natural resources and related socioeconomic benefits

DARRP Accomplishments in Louisiana

  • Restoration and/or protection of 579 acres of marine habitats and 5 acres of freshwater and terrestrial habitats in Louisiana (completed and planned activities).
  • Development of the Louisiana Regional Restoration Planning Program (RRP Program) with state and federal co-trustees to increase the frequency and efficiency of habitat restoration following oil discharges
  • Settlements resulting in 9 protection and restoration projects in Louisiana.
  • Cleanup actions promoting recovery of coastal resources and communities at 5 hazardous waste sites.
