On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded, killing 11 people and releasing 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico over an 87-day period. Ten years later, we are seeing millions of dollars of coastal restoration projects hit the ground to start to restore those injured natural resources. Moffatt & Nichol is proud to be a part of numerous scientific and engineering projects across the Gulf supporting our non-governmental, state, and federal clients. These are our Gulf communities where our friends and families enjoy a great quality of life, and we are proud to be able to contribute to the recovery of coastal communities and habitats that make this place unique.
Places like Bayou La Batre were hit hard by the oil spill. Habitat restoration projects like this one at Lightning Point are almost complete and will help bring back habitats critical to fisheries of this community. Economic recovery projects in the adjacent City Docks will compliment this project to begin to make these small communities whole. We are proud to be working with our clients to make these projects come to life in the years to come. https://lnkd.in/gwZcC7V
