In April 2010, the National Park Service became an integral part of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill response and clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico. Today, we continue to work on the restoration of injured natural resources with our federal and state partners through the Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration Trustee Council.

For the most current information and a complete list of the partners involved in the trustee council, visit the Department of the Interior's Deepwater Horizon webpage.
