LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tar from the Santa Barbara oil spill washed up at least as far away as a Los Angeles County beach last month, according to test results released Monday.
The findings confirmed what was suspected by many after globs of oil began swamping Southern California beaches in the weeks after a pipeline dumped up to 101,000 gallons of crude oil on the coast May 19.
Workers examine the coastline in Long Beach for tarballs. The tarballs have also washed ashore in Oxnard, Malibu and the South Bay.
Crude oil from a pipeline rupture in Santa Barbara County last month floated down the coast to beaches in Ventura and Los Angeles counties, according to separate lab results released Monday by both state officials and the Texas pipeline company.
An initial analysis of the tar balls that washed ashore in the South Bay last month, coating the area’s most popular beaches, links the oil to the Refugio pipeline spill near Santa Barbara.
