Solution

Lynker scientists were involved in the Deepwater Horizon injury assessment and settlement process beginning in 2010, and have been supporting Louisiana in meeting its regulatory requirements as defined by the programmatic damage assessment and restoration plan (PDARP). Since the Deepwater Horizon settlement was completed, we have been lead authors on multiple restoration plans and environmental assessments that have helped to move barrier island, marsh creation, and sediment diversion projects through the TIG planning process to release construction funds.

Actionable Intelligence

Lynker has developed a collaborative writing and scheduling process that provides room for stakeholder input at each step of the way. We develop strict guidelines and timelines for trustees to provide comments so that the final drafts of our restoration plans are complete, polished, and on time. This ensures that funding can be released from the settlement dollars and construction schedules can be met.

Planning and Designing for Resilient and Green Infrastructure

Infrastructure and its networks will be affected by the physical impacts of climate variability and change but will also play an essential role in building resilience to those impacts. Lynker Intel can help you prioritize, plan, and design new or retrofit old infrastructure in a more thoughtful environmentally aligned (green) manner that can account for the climate and other changes that may occur over its lifetime.
