Dr. Kevin Reynolds
Department of the Interior’s Case Manager for the Deepwater Horizon NRDA

One of the primary missions of the U.S. Department of the Interior is to protect America’s natural resources. Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) is the scientific and legal process used by the Department to restore natural resources injured as a result of oil spills or hazardous substances released into the environment. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill was the largest and most prolonged offshore oil spills our country has ever experienced. Dr. Kevin Reynolds is the Department of the Interior’s Case Manager for the Deepwater Horizon NRDA. He provides leadership, direction, and coordination for the Department on all aspects of both injury assessment and restoration for the largest NRDA in the history of the United States. Dr. Reynolds will be discussing how science, the law and public input influence and drive the NRDA process towards the ultimate goal: restoration of our nation’s natural resources.

Reception and refreshments will immediately follow the seminar in BSB A.301 which will conclude at 4:00pm
