MDEQ offers new way to give ideas on post-oil spill restoration

There is new, convenient way to chime in thoughts and ideas on how to revitalize the Gulf Coast in the after math of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality has created a web site — www.restore.ms — where the public can submit ideas.

MDEQ executive director Trudi Fisher says MDEQ has already received a number of project proposals from municipalities and the coastal counties. She says this expands the opportunity to hear new ideas from individuals, groups, nonprofits and even new projects from local governments, and she expects to see a wide variety of ideas through the public submissions.
