Tarballs washing up on Southern California beaches

Posted: Updated:
 As clean-up efforts continue in Goleta, people were reporting tar washing up on beaches up and down the coast this weekend.

Gunnar Nelson sent KSBY video of some of the tarballs.

Plains All American Pipeline has agreed to clean up Ventura County beaches just in case these tarballs were produced by the leak near Refugio State Beach.

The beaches there remain open.

There has been no confirmation that tar balls in Ventura County or L.A. County have anything to do with the South Coast oil spill, but oil fingerprinting is being done.

For more on that oil fingerprinting, what it is and how it is done, watch KSBY News Monday night at 6.
