North Slope Borough Oil Spill Workshop
NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration is pleased to announce the report for the "North Slope Borough: An Oil Spill Workshop on NRDA & ERMA®" workshop that was held November 8 & 9, 2012 in Barrow, Alaska. The goal of this meeting was to discuss community involvement in spill response and natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) and restoration/recovery. Community concerns and recommendations collected at the workshop will be provided to the State of Alaska and the U.S. Coast Guard for their use in planning oil spill response in the region. The report findings will be used by NOAA and other agencies to establish priorities for NRDA and restoration. NOAA will also use the report to establish priorities for data to augment the Arctic Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA).
