Project Submission Guidelines (click to expand)

Please note that your project suggestion and any associated attachments may be posted online. The information you submit will be retained as part of the Administrative Record for the Natural Resources Damage Assessment. Please be advised that your project suggestion–including your name and contact information, if included–may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us to withhold this information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Projects submissions will be screened in advance of being posted online. All projects and attachments will be reviewed based on the guidelines listed below and posted (or not) following that review. Project suggestions that contain unacceptable content will not be edited; those projects will simply not be posted.

Also, supporting documents, links, etc., are welcome as long as they are pertinent to the restoration project suggestion. However, the appearance of external links, advertisements, political opinions, or other comments do not constitute endorsement by the U.S. Government.

Please note that content that meets the following criteria will NOT be posted:

  • Contains vulgar language or material, personal attacks of any kind, threats, obscenity, or offensive terms that target specific ethnic or racial groups;
  • Promotes services or products (non-commercial links that are relevant to the comment are acceptable);
  • Are far off-topic (i.e., not within the scope of the Trustees' Programmatic Damage Assessment and Restoration Plan); or
  • Make unsupported accusations.
