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

To report oiled wildlife sightings, please call Oil Wildlife Care Network HOTLINE:  877-823-6926

For recorded beach conditions, 24-hours a day, L.A. County’s beach advisory hotline is 800-525-5662, or info online,

Kick off the boating season with a free mobile sewage pumpout!

Dumping raw sewage into waterways can spread disease, harms aquatic life, lowers oxygen levels in the water, and is just gross. And it’s against the law to dump in U.S. navigable waters.  Click here to learn more about the effects of sewage in our waterways and get a free mobile pumpout to jump start your boating season.

For your very own cruisers guide and to locate a sewage pumpout location, download the Southern California Boater’s Guide app from iTunes.
