Manhattan Beach Tar Balls Traced to Santa Barbara County

Tar Balls that came ashore last month at Manhattan Beach have been traced to the oil spill off Santa Barbara County.

Testing on a tar ball recovered from Manhattan Beach has found it came from the oil spilled into the ocean off Refugio Beach.  There are over a hundred samples being tested by two independent laboratories to find the source of the oil.  Responding to the finding, South Bay congressman Ted Lieu expects Plains-All American Pipeline, owner of the broken pipeline will bear the added costs of the cleanup at Southern California beaches.  Tests are being performed to see if detergent, used to break up the oil slick off Refugio Beach, was present in the sample.   Tom Perumean, KABC NEWS.
