Exxon Bayway Oil Spill - Staten Island Salt Marsh Restoration

Approximately 567,000 gallons of No. 2 fuel oil discharged from a ruptured pipeline on the bottom of the Arthur Kill waterway in New York Harbor on January 1, 1990. Over 100 acres of salt marsh were oiled on the Staten Island and the New Jersey shorelines killing much of the marsh vegetation and a variety of salt marsh and intertidal organisms. The restoration goals of this case were to restore the injured wetlands and other resources through wetland restoration and land acquisition.
