As part of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) process, the Portland Harbor Natural Resource Trustee Council is exploring restoration opportunities. The goal of restoration is to return injured natural resources and services to the condition they would have been in if no contamination had occurred. Restoration actions will improve habitat conditions along the lower Willamette River, its shorelines, floodplain, and river-associated habitats, focusing on the most important habitat needs of injured fish and wildlife.

The Trustee Council has identified a preliminary list of potential restoration opportunities in the Portland Harbor area and is drafting a Restoration Plan that will outline restoration options and guide how specific restoration projects are chosen. The plan is scheduled to be released in draft form during the summer of 2012. The Trustee Council will seek public input on the plan in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
