Cleanup Efforts are Underway in the Santa Barbara Oil Spill

Hosted by  • 

More than 100 thousand gallons of oil may have spilled in this week’s pipeline rupture in Santa Barbara. Even though the pipeline runs on land, more than 20 thousand gallons of oil flowed into the ocean. Cleanup efforts are underway and could take months. The pipeline is owned and operated by the Texas-based company, Plains All American Pipeline, which runs 18 thousand miles of pipelines across several states. This is not the company's first safety issue.
