Last October, secretary of agriculture Tom Vilsack announced the Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative, a $320 million program to reduce agricultural runoff into the Gulf of Mexico. Critics of the plan say the money is not nearly enough to adequately address the problem.
Several organizations are dedicated to reversing the dead zone. The Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force is an organization composed of five federal agencies and ten state agencies that are working together. Gulfhypoxia.net and the Gulf Restoration Network are some of the other organizations dedicated to reducing pollution in the Gulf of Mexico.
