Richmond Oil Spill

Richmond, California. January 10, 2021. Bruce Joab, Senior Environmental Scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Chevron Environmental Unit staff collect water and sand samples at Point Molate Beach to determine the area impacted by the Chevron refinery oil spill on February 9, 2021.

State and federal officials have offered to help Chevron take over the cleanup of a petroleum product leak that spilled an estimated five gallons per minute Tuesday afternoon at the long dock of Chevron's Richmond refinery.

About 600 gallons ended up in the bay between 2:40 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., when the leak was stopped, according to Contra Costa supervisor John Gioia, who said, "It's unacceptable."
