Monitors Continue to Track Oil Spill off Carpinteria
Cleanup crews continued to monitor an oil spill off the coast of Carpinteria on Saturday.
About 1,000 gallons of oily water mixture were recovered Friday, and officials said the on-water cleanup effort was nearly complete. Shoreline assessment teams were to monitor South Coast beaches from Carpinteria to Santa Barbara through the weekend.
The size of the spill has not been determined.
The cleanup is being handled by the Coast Guard, the California Department of Fish & Game, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement and Pacific Offshore Operators, which operates the platform’s pipelines.
Anyone who finds oiled wildlife are urged not to handle the animals and to call the Oil Wildlife Care Network at 1.877.823.6926.
