Oil spill in LA[edit]

The BBC seems to suggest here that Plains All American have a pipeline with a pump station in LA - which is rather outside the area described in the article? So I'm wondering if this is the correct article to mention the spill ? or is there another spot it belongs ? The oil spill (originally estimated as 1,000,000 gallons spilled, but later revised to 50,000 gallons and then 10,000 gallons) was apparently due to a faulty valve.

Andy Caldwell, Executive Director of COLAB (The Coalition of Labor, Agriculture and Business) [1] whose radio show is described as "The Voice of Reason", argued that the oil spill was an unfortunate accident that can be cleaned up in a matter of weeks. Caldwell claimed the "same amount of oil leaks into the waters off the Refugio coast every two days due to natural seepage."[2] Santa Barbara County supervisor Doreen Farr "contended natural seeps do not require the closure of beaches, cost millions of dollars to clean, or bring hundreds of people from all over the country to Santa Barbara’s shores."[2]Oceanflynn (talk) 15:12, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
