New Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force Web Site Established

April 6, 2011

The GCERTF Communications and Engagement Team is pleased to announce the new GCERTF Task Force web site. The website has been moved from the RestoretheGulf page to the EPA server to better communicate Task Force information.

The Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Task Force was created by President Obama through an Executive Order on October 5, 2010, and is the result of a recommendation made in Secretary Mabus' report on long term recovery following the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. By October 5, 2011, the Task Force is charged with development of a restoration strategy that proposes a Gulf Coast ecosystem restoration agenda.
