Over 100,000 gallons of crude oil spilled onto Refugio State Beach Tuesday May 19. The pipeline operator said a line integrity check was done recently (last time it was checked was in 2012). They are awaiting results. Plains All American has a long record of issues. In May 2014 this is the same company responsible for the Atwater Village (Los Angeles) oil spill of 10,000 gallons.
Refugio and El Capitan Beaches are closed. There are 2 streaks of oil spanning 9 miles.

95% of oil well drilling in Ventura County was conducted without environmental review

CFROG-FacebookTHIS JUST IN FROM CFROG—

“We want to alert you to a brand new Environmental Defense Center investigation, co-sponsored by CFROG, that reveals that in the last two years nearly 95% of oil well drilling in Ventura County, totaling more than 400 wells, was conducted without environmental review or application of the new notice and reporting requirements for hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and acid well stimulation (“acidizing”).

In the report we present options the Board of Supervisors must take that are both legal and appropriate. The author, Brian Segee, senior attorney with EDC, says, “We respectfully urge County Supervisors to reexamine the scope of vested rights held by these companies, and to ensure that the health of local residents and the environment is protected from increased oil drilling in general, and fracking and acidizing in particular.”

You can read the report in its entirety on our website.
