Spill Response at Pt. Mugu Naval Station in Ventura County

The OWCN has been activated for a spill at Pt. Mugu Naval Station in Ventura County. A plane crashed and subsequently exploded at Mugu Lagoon last night at 5:30 pm. The plane was carrying 150,000 pounds of jet fuel, and an unknown amount has entered the water.

We are dispatching 3 Recovery & Transportation teams to the area immediately, as well as our hazing team. It is early in the response process, and we will provide more information as it becomes available to us.
