OC OIL SPILL NEWS
Start 2021 (Manmade and Natural)

 

OCH is continuing to update our Oil Spill page as new spill, sheen, or tarball sightings come in. This page was initiated with the October Oil Spill incident off the shores of Huntington Beach in October 2021. The bulk of the shoreline work has been completed and now long term assessments continue to be made as we move from recovery to restoration around our marine, coastal, and estuarine ecosystems. We ask our followers and supporters mindful of potential hazards that may still exist as you traverse our local beaches and to not touch tarballs or injured/oiled animals but to report through the numbers below.

Oiled Wildlife Hotline: 1-877-UCD-OWCN (1-877-823-6926).

Tarball Reporting: CAL OES Warning Center or the National Response Center at the following numbers: 

The National Response Center (800)-424-8802; 

CalOES State Warning Center:  (800)-852-7550.

A Unified Command continues to investigate the source of offshore oil sheens observed on Dec. 15 and 22. As part of planned operations to evacuate oil from Pipeline 0919 and identify the source, a release produced a sheen this morning. There were response assets staged on-scene, as a potential release from these operations was anticipated. These assets include booming and skimming resources, a helicopter, and a dive team.  The dive team is currently on-scene investigating the pipeline below the sheen. There are no observed impacts to wildlife or the shoreline at this time.
