Service Description: Coastal restoration, beach nourishment, and levee reconstruction are crucial to mitigate future coastal erosion, land loss, flooding, and storm damage in the Gulf of Mexico. The success of that long-term effort depends on locating and securing significant quantities of OCS sediment resources that are compatible with the target environments being restored. Offshore sand resources, like upland sources, are extremely scarce where most needed. Additionally, sizable areas of these relatively small offshore sand resources are not extractable because of the presence of oil and gas infrastructure, archaeologically sensitive areas, and biologically sensitive areas. Since the use of OCS sediment resources is authorized by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the bureau is implementing measures to help safeguard the most significant OCS sediment resources, reduce multiple use conflicts, and minimize interference with oil and gas operations under existing leases or rights-of-way. OCS sediment resources refer to the sediment deposit(s), including clay, silt, sand, and gravel size particles and shell, found on or below the surface of the seabed on the OCS, as defined in Section 2(a) of the OCS Lands Act (43 U.S.C. ยง 1331(a)). This data delineates the surface location of significant Outer Continental Shelf sediment resources in the Gulf of Mexico. Bottom-disturbing activities, including but not limited to surface or near-surface emplacement of platforms, wells, drilling rigs, pipelines, umbilicals, and cables should avoid, to the maximum extent practicable, significant OCS sediment resources.
