The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Inspector General (OIG), received two Hotline complaints on the use of dispersants in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. We reviewed the steps EPA took to analyze the dispersant Corexit for inclusion on the National Contingency Plan (NCP) Product Schedule. We also determined EPA’s role in the decision to use Corexit in the response. The OIG Office of Counsel addressed a perjury allegation in one complaint.
