Public Health Dept. Press Release: Beach Assessment and Clean-up Continues and Extends (70.26 KB)

The Refugio Oil response effort includes continued assessment and clean-up of local beaches in Southern Santa Barbara County. Professional and volunteer clean-up crews have been deployed for oil removal activities across beaches in Santa Barbara County including Arroyo Burro Beach and other Santa Barbara area beaches. These individuals are appropriately trained and wear personal protective equipment, to prepare for potential direct contact with oil products. Sections of beaches may be temporarily restricted to allow space for them to work; this does not indicate that the beaches are unsafe for the public. Protective boom is being placed at some local beaches and waterways such as the Arroyo Burro Creek and Goleta Slough. These are placed to proactively prevent oil from potentially getting into these sensitive areas.
