Keeping Up with Refugio Oil Spill & the South Bay
Reports from tests are confirming that tar balls seen on South Bay beaches last month were from the oil spill along Refugio State Beach. Please keep reading your media for updates. We thank U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu for underscoring the danger of oil spills to the area’s coastline, and his attention to next steps.
As summer begins, we encourage everyone to be watchful on the beaches for yourselves and for wildlife.
Updates and to volunteer, please visit: DFW / OSPR – Cal Spill Watch
