The Cal Spill Watch page provides information about current response efforts to oil spills in California. The site is updated when spills occur.
The Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) has the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s public trustee and custodial responsibilities for protecting, managing and restoring the State’s fish, wildlife, and plants. It is one of the few State agencies in the nation that has both major pollution response authority and public trustee authority for wildlife and habitat. This mandate ensures that prevention, preparedness, restoration and response will provide the best protection for California’s natural resources.
