Understanding the DWH Restoration Processes in Alabama
The Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill resulted in several settlements with responsible parties, leading to subsequent payments of fines and claims related to a number of statutes including the Oil Pollution Act and the Clean Water Act. A number of different entities oversee the distribution and oversight of these funds, and the processes for decision-making varies from state to state. Below is additional information about each process.
