In addition, we provided incident coordination to nine hurricane and tropical storms during the 2020 hurricane season through the Disaster Preparedness Program; we supported two pollution settlements in Washington state for a total of $2.2 million for restoration of public natural resources; we made major advances in data management; and in our outreach efforts we celebrated 30 years since the passage of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. These accomplishments show our dedication to science-based solutions for protecting and restoring natural resources from coastal hazards.
