Deepwater Horizon

The Office of Response and Restoration was one of the agencies in the response to the 2010 collapse of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform which led to the tragic loss of 11 lives and the largest oil spill in US waters. Even after the event was no longer in headlines, the Office and its partner agencies remained hard at work conducting studies and restoration projects. Visit our information guide to learn more.
