4 La. meetings set to discuss oil spill damage
NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Four public meetings are scheduled across coastal Louisiana next week to discuss damage the BP oil spill did to the environment and natural resources.
The meetings are part of the natural resource damage assessment process for the spill. A damage assessment is a lengthy legal process that determines the type and amount of restoration to be done to make up for damage from an oil spill.
The meetings will be held at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux on Monday; at the Jefferson Council Chambers in Harahan on Tuesday; at the Iberia Parish Library in New Iberia on Wednesday; and at the St. Bernard Council Chambers in Chalmette on Thursday.
