GOM Returning to Baseline Condition 5 years after Deepwater Horizon

A new scientific study five years after the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill shows that the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) has returned to the baseline environmental condition prior to the spill. Key findings: No long-term adverse impact to bird and fish populations have been found after the mortality in 2010; The depth of the spill and the temperate climate have contributed to the oil break down; "affected areas are recovering faster than predicted;" BP spend an unprecedented $1 billion to restore natural resources of the GOM.
