Huntington Beach Oil Spill: Two Experts Explain What Happens Next

Oct 7, 2021

The environmental impact of the Huntington Beach oil spill will be felt for years to come.

Between October 1 and 2, a pipeline leak released around 126,000 gallons (just under 573,000 liters) of highly viscous liquid petroleum into the ocean off the coast of Huntington Beach in Southern California. The resultant pollution has washed over miles of the state’s most popular beaches, protected wetlands, and wildlife habitats. Dead fish, birds, and oily residue have since washed up in the so-called Surf City of the U.S., blackening the sand and waves.
