The California Department of Justice is investigating an oil leak that sparked fears of an environmental disaster near Huntington Beach, California Attorney General Rob Bonta said on Monday.
Bonta said authorities would work to determine what caused thousands of gallons of crude oil to leak from a pipeline owned by Houston-based firm Amplify Energy and whether anything could have been done to prevent the spill.
"The oil spill off the coast of Huntington Beach is an environmental disaster with far-reaching consequences for our fish and wildlife, for our communities, and for our economy," Bonta said in a press release. "I want to thank all our local, state, and federal partners who are working around the clock to protect the health and safety of Californians and to mitigate the damage to our environment and natural resources."
