Oil Spill in SF Bay: OWCN Activated

It’s been a busy morning for the OWCN. Earlier this morning the OWCN was activated for an oil spill that occurred in the San Francisco Bay off of Anchorage 9. We are immediately deploying Recovery and Transportation teams. Since this is early in the spill, it is unclear what, if any, impacts have occurred to wildlife. We will know more in the next several hours once teams have arrived on site. We will keep you posted on the wildlife side of the response.

To learn more about the incident, check out the San Francisco Chronicle’s article here.
