Closure of State Park beaches near Santa Barbara County oil spill extended

Posted: Updated:

El Capitan Beach State Park and Refugio Beach State Park will remain closed to campers through June 25, according to officials with the Refugio Beach oil spill response effort.

Campers who already had a reservation can get a refund through Reserve America, which can be contacted by calling 1-800-444-7275.

More than two weeks after a pipeline owned by Plains All American ruptured, spilling an estimated 100,000 gallons of crude oil, clean up efforts continued. As of Friday, June 5, officials said 14,267 gallons of oily water mixture had been recovered, along with 5,385 cubic yards of sand, soil, vegetation and other debris. More than 7,000 feet of boom remained deployed, along with 21 skimmers.

Since the spill, wildlife officials said 181 oiled birds and 107 marine mammals had been recovered. Of those, 123 birds and 65 mammals had died.

The discovery of oiled wildlife can be reported by calling 1-877-823-6926.
