Another update on crews investigating the oil sheen that was discovered: #ocoilspill

➡️ On November 20, crews scheduled for planned work on the pipeline observed and reported a sheen of 30’ by 70’ as they approached the area of the line. #breakingnews
Divers conducting the planned assessments on the line then discovered small droplets on the syntho-glass wrap.

Unified Command deployed pollution responders & oil spill response organization assets to investigate the sheen & whether it was related to the pipeline.

As of 1400, no sheen has been observed by on-water or aerial assets. The old wrap was removed from the line and the new wrap was installed.

Crews will monitor the line overnight to ensure effectiveness.

A full week into the #OCOilspill, we are over 1,300 responders strong with 10,000 public volunteers signed up (4,000+ from OC). To assess our progress over the last few days I joined the @OCSheriff for a flyover of booms, skimming operations, deployed crews, and more. 1/ ImageImage
My first impressions: we’re making headway. Most black crude is visibly extracted compared to this time last week. Experts tell me the spill is by no means on par with the ‘15 Refugio Beach disaster due to their swift response. 2/ ImageImage
In both size and scope, we avoided the worst of the leak. However, this does NOT mean that #OCOilSpill cleanup and recovery efforts will be short—or easy. 3/
