Shoreline cleanup and assessment teams will be assessing beaches from Oceanside to San Diego to guide cleanup operations. The teams will be sampling water, soil, and air and testing will occur in the coming days.

Tar balls were discovered on Oct. 8 in Mission Beach and San Diego regional lifeguards will be monitoring for tar balls and oil. Tar balls were collected Wednesday evening in Oceanside and more were reported Thursday in Carlsbad, Encinitas, and Del Mar.

As a precautionary measure, an absorbent boom to protect waterways has been set up at the mouth of the Santa Margarita River and the Agua Hedionda/Carlsbad Desalinization Plant and will have 24 hour monitoring.  

Beaches and waterways remain open, but that could change if a public health threat was determined. If people do encounter oil or tar at the beach, they are advised not to touch or pick it up. Avoid contact with it whenever possible, but occasional brief contact is unlikely to cause significant or lasting health concerns for most people.

However, some individuals are especially sensitive to certain chemicals which may be found in oil slicks or tar balls and may therefore develop skin rashes or other reactions as a result. Wash off with regular soap and follow up with your primary care provider if a rash appears.

To report tar/oil email: tarballreports@wildlife.ca.gov. In the email, include 1) Date the oil was observed, 2) Time the oil was observed, 3) Specific location where the oil was observed – GPS coordinates are preferred, 4) Descriptive photos of the oil (do not touch it), 5) A short visual/physical description of the oil, 6) Estimated quantity, 7) Contact information for follow-up.

At this point, there have been no reports of oiled wildlife but if any are observed, do not attempt to touch or help it, leave it to the professionals and call 1-877-823-6926.

County of San Diego Emergency Operations Center will remain activated to monitor the incident.

I basically make about $14,000 to $18,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it copy below web…

I'd like to see enough actual and punitive damages awarded to give the oil addiction running that oil platform & pipe a civil death penalty.
