An Oily Mess, A Slippery Cleanup

Hosted by

The company that owns the pipeline that ruptured this week off the coast of Santa Barbara now has to go through a series of steps before it can restart that line. Federal regulators are requiring Plains All-American Pipeline to remove the damaged section of pipe, test it and then empty the remainder of the line. Meanwhile, bad weather and choppy waters have slowed the cleanup efforts for the time being. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis speaks with KCRW’s Kathryn Barnes, a producer and reporter based at our studio in Santa Barbara, and Kelsey Brugger, a reporter with the Santa Barbara Independent.
