Workers monitor the site of an underground oil pipe break up a hill from Refugio State Beach, north of Goleta, Calif., on May 20. The pipe, owned by Plains All American Pipeline, spewed oil down a culvert and into the Pacific on May 19 before it was shut off. Preliminary findings released by the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration indicate that the pipe had worn down to 1/16 of an inch thick.
