Restore The Gulf: RestoretheGulf.gov is the official federal portal for the Deepwater BP oil spill response and recovery. This site provides the public with information on the response, current operations, news and updates, how to file a claim and obtain other assistance, and links to federal, state and local partners.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Deepwater Horizon Library is a web archive of the maps, wildlife reports, scientific reports and other previously released public information available to emergency responders, fishermen, mariners and local officials during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
The Deepwater Horizon Response (DHR) Unified Area Command (UAC) in New Orleans has established a Non-Government Organization Interaction Unit to increase our level of engagement and strengthen the partnership with numerous local NGOs throughout the Gulf Region that have a vested interest in this response effort.
