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.
