Oiling Situation Map as of June 11

Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT) teams updated the survey results for shoreline in the Refugio Incident. Of the 96.5 miles of shoreline surveyed in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, 85 percent have met cleanup goals. Clean areas will continue to be monitored for re-oiling which may occur, especially with the natural oil seeps in the area. Teams will also continue to take samples.

Cleanup continues on other parts of the shoreline, especially cobble and rock areas which require hand crews, and in the excavation area in the vicinity of the initial release.
