Exxon Valdez Oil Spill - 1006

Exxon Valdez oil spill information

On March 24, 1989 the oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound, Alaska, spilling an estimated 11 million gallons of crude oil across 1, 300 kilometers of shoreline - a catastrophic event that result in very comprehensive examinations of ramifications of oil on the environment. Whilst great majority of this spill area now seems to have recovered, pouches of crude oil stay static in some places, and there's research that not totally all resources hurt because of the spill have restored on previous condition

The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (EVOS) Trustee Council had been established with funds from the legal settlement amongst the State of Alaska, the government and Exxon to produce research, repair and habitat conservation programs for spill location. Current studies underway tend to be directed towards longterm tracking and analysis. The NMFS Alaska Regional Administrator represents NOAA on Council and oversees the implementation of Cooperative Agreements that NOAA has built on behalf of the EVOS council. Info on these programs is found through EVOS Trustee Council.
