The Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) has launched their new Deepwater Horizon Project Tracker. This tracker allows visitors to see where Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill restoration projects are occurring. Each project listed includes a brief description, contact and link to access more technical information. GOMA is working directly with the groups funding projects related to oil spill restoration to ensure accuracy. The tracker’s development team is hosting a demonstration followed by a Q&A opportunity on Thursday, April 23 at 1PM EDT. You can join the webinar here.
