Public Involvement
Case: Cosco Busan, CA

As a result of the M/V Cosco Busan oil spill in San Francisco Bay, state and federal trustee agencies (Trustees), in cooperation with local cities, counties, and other organizations, worked to assess the ecological injuries and human use losses caused by the spill. Through this process, known as a natural resource damage assessment (NRDA), the Trustees quantified the injuries to resources, including wildlife and habitats, plus the lost human use of those resources, to develop a Draft Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan which was released in September 2011 for public comment. A Final Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan was released in March 2012.
