California oil spill cleanup nears completion
Cleanup is nearing completion after an oil spill off the coast of Southern California. An undersea pipeline leaked about 25,000 gallons of oil into the Pacific Ocean in early October. Federal officials believe the Amplify Energy pipeline was likely damaged by a ship’s anchor. Workers have been removing tar from beaches, but the impacts to wildlife and sensitive wetlands has been less severe than anticipated. Officials say much of the oil appeared to break up at sea.
