1 DEEPWATER HORIZON OIL SPILL ONE YEAR LATER Florida Department of Environmental Protection The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is the lead state agency for responding to impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill along Florida s shoreline. In addition, DEP is the lead designated trustee for the state of Florida on the Deepwater Horizon Trustee Council, along with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) as a co-trustee and DEP has a representative member on the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force. Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in Florida By the Numbers Oil Product Collected (as of April 11, 2011) 2,497,515 pounds DEP Employees Worked 909 employees DEP Staff Hours Worked More than 142,000 hours Approximate Miles of Coastline Impacted 200 miles Total Feet of Boom Deployed in Florida 791,061 feet Total Environmental Samples Analyzed by DEP (Air, 2,102 Samples Water, Sediment) Total Environmental Samples Collected Overall in More than 10,000 Samples Florida (Water, Tissue, Sediment, Submersed Aquatic Vegetation, Tar Balls and Oil) Overall DEP Costs (as of April 11, 2011) $36,311, Date Oil First Hit Florida s Coastline June 4, 2010 HIGHLIGHTS DEP is sampling water and sediment along the Northwest Florida coastline through the swim season. All sampling conducted and analyzed in Florida has registered below levels of concern according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s (EPA) and the Florida Department of Health s (DOH) human health benchmarks for air, water or sediment. Response continues in Florida and field teams are recovering much smaller quantities of oil each day from Florida s coastline. Any observed oil is scheduled for pick-up and properly disposed. Ongoing impacts are expected to be minimal and are more likely to be seen in the western counties. Restoration efforts are ongoing throughout the Gulf States and are being led by the Deepwater Horizon Trustee Council and the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force.

2 PROCESS When an oil spill occurs, federal law, the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), has established a system for federal and state agencies and the party responsible for the spill to cooperate and restore the affected area to its pre-spill condition. Response and restoration are two different aspects of the process created by OPA that share the broad goal of ultimately returning the impacted area to its original state before the spill occurred. The purpose of response is to execute an emergency clean up and remove the oil spilled. Restoration involves the process of determining the extent of damage to natural resources resulting from the spill and the long term process of bringing damaged resources back to their original state. RESPONSE OVERVIEW DEP is working hard to ensure that the 2011 tourism season is successful for Northwest Florida and that visitors to Florida s beaches will find the traditional white sands to be free of oil. DEP is sampling water and sediment along the Northwest Florida coastline through the swim season. Based on analysis of these samples by the Florida Department of Health (DOH), the most recent data indicate swimming in the Gulf or visiting the beach poses no risk to human health associated with oil spill contaminants. Florida is in a transition from the response to recovery phase. BP has committed to a continued cleanup and will maintain personnel to handle any further oiling. DEP and the U.S. Coast Guard are working together to ensure that the cleanup continues. Response continues in Florida and field teams are recovering much smaller quantities of oil each day from Florida s coastline. A deep cleaning effort throughout the winter months using heavy equipment was successful in removing tons of oil each day. This effort concluded prior to spring tourism, bird nesting and turtle nesting seasons. Hand crews are removing a few hundred pounds of oil per day and will continue monitoring as long as there is oil to be recovered. As of April 11, ,497,515 pounds of oil have been removed from Florida s coastline.

3 A complete reassessment of the shorelines is being made by Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Techniques (SCAT) teams. Any observed oil is scheduled for pick-up and properly disposed. The surveying and collection process is likely to continue through the 2011 Hurricane Season when another assessment of Northwest Florida s coastline will be performed. Some Northwest Florida beaches will continue to see isolated oil impacts that are influenced by natural tides and varying weather conditions. These impacts will consist mainly of scattered tar balls, but may also be buried oil that may become exposed in the sand along the shoreline. These impacts are minimal and are more likely to be seen in the western counties. RESTORATION OVERVIEW Restoration is guided by the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA), a legal process to determine the type and amount of restoration needed to compensate the public for harm to natural resources and their human uses that occur as a result of an oil spill incident or a hazardous substance release. Assessing and restoring damages resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is a long term process that will take years, possibly decades to complete. Restoration efforts are ongoing throughout the Gulf States and are being led by the Deepwater Horizon Trustee Council and the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force. Working together and alongside other groups they are evaluating and measuring the impacts of the spill on natural resources to restore, replace, rehabilitate or acquire the equivalent of these resources. Trustees are preparing a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement to assess the environmental and economic impacts of potential restoration projects to satisfy requirements under the National Environmental Policy Act. Florida is currently in the assessment phase, determining impacts to natural resources and planning restoration. DEP is in the process of accumulating all oil spill related data that has been collected in Florida to aid in this process.

4 The initial phases of two emergency restoration projects related to seagrass restoration and dune and marsh vegetation that include sites in Florida have been approved by BP. Restoration work on these projects will begin once final sites are determined. DEP is accepting restoration project ideas for projects located in eight Northwest Florida counties - Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla. Proposed projects will be submitted to the Deepwater Horizon Trustee Council, which will decide which projects qualify under the Oil Pollution Act. Selected projects will be presented to BP, the responsible party, for final approval and funding. FUNDING DEP has three different grants to cover specific agency costs related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Costs include, but are not limited to: salaries, travel, equipment, sampling efforts, studies etc. DEP Costs As of April 11, 2011 Grant Purpose Total Any agency costs related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. $4,549, Any boom related expenditures. Grant is closed and is no $30,201, longer incurring costs. All restoration costs related to the Natural Resource Damage $1,561, Assessment (NRDA). Florida has been allotted $8 million for this purpose and can reapply for more funding when it is necessary. *Note: The first two grants are managed by the Division of Emergency Management. The funds are drawn from the $50 million given to the state of Florida by BP for response efforts in Florida. AFFECTED COUNTIES Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin and Wakulla counties are the eight counties included when referencing Northwest Florida. Confirmed oil from the spill was found as far east as Franklin County and boom was deployed as far east as Jefferson County. Approximately 98 percent of the recovered oil product has been from the Escambia County shoreline, with diminishing amounts moving eastward. Pounds of Oil Product Collected by County As of April 11, 2011 Escambia Okaloosa Walton Bay Gulf Franklin Total 2,446,205 34,415 12,589 3, ,497,515 *Note: Santa Rosa County figures are included in Escambia County due to their limited coastline.

5 ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLING Environmental Samples Collected in Response to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill May 3, 2010 to March 31, 2011 Sampling Purpose Water Sediment Waste Tissue Air Total Baseline Assessment Beach Monitoring Clean Sand Sampling Product Sampling Proximity Sampling Beach Monitoring Clean Sand Sampling Targeted Sampling Air Total 1, ,102 Water/Sediment DEP began collecting pre-oil spill impact samples at beaches throughout the Gulf Coast the first week of May These results are being used, along with the results from other samples collected by Federal agencies, in the NRDA process to help determine the level of environmental restoration necessary in Florida. Once oil reached Florida s shores, DEP began conducting sampling of Northwest Florida beaches for oil spill contaminants to determine any potential public health impact. Detectable levels of oil contamination have not been observed in water samples since mid-july Beach monitoring for oil contamination was suspended during the cool weather months and resumed in early February in preparation for the 2011 swim season. Results to date have found no appreciable oil spill contamination in the beach water or in visibly clean sand samples. All sampling conducted and analyzed in Florida has registered below levels of concern according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s (EPA) and the Florida Department of Health s (DOH) human health benchmarks. Air Both DEP and EPA conducted additional air monitoring in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. DEP collected volatile organic compounds (VOCs) ambient air samples in Fort Walton Beach and East Point through September 20, EPA collected VOC and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) ambient air samples at the Pensacola Naval Air Station and at St. Andrews State Park in Panama City.

6 In addition, EPA mobilized the Trace Atmospheric Gas Analyzers (TAGA), a selfcontained mobile laboratory to conduct real-time VOC monitoring of outdoor emissions from various environmental sources along the Gulf Coast. TAGA monitoring consisted of 25 sampling days along the Florida Gulf Coast and found levels well below any that would cause temporary discomfort, irritation or other minor effects. All sampling results collected showed values well below levels of concern for public health. Dispersants Dispersants were never used in state of Florida waters. Trace amounts of Dioctylsulfosuccinate-NA (DOSS), an ingredient of the Corexit dispersant, have been detected in less than 10 samples to date. DOSS is also found in many popular consumer products such as paints, sunscreens, shampoos and lotions and other pharmaceutical products. DOSS analyses are being performed weekly through the 2011 swim season at more than a dozen popular Northwest Florida beaches as part of ongoing beach monitoring. All sampling conducted and analyzed in Florida has registered below levels of concern according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s (EPA) and the Florida Department of Health s (DOH) human health benchmarks.
