Decommissioning Project Update

Great progress is being made on the California State Lands Commission’s oil and gas decommissioning project taking place near Haskell’s Beach. The crews have removed the huge concrete caisson walls on PRC 421-1 and will start removing the second caisson walls on PRC-421-2 soon. Once both caisson walls have been removed, crews will start dismantling the piers. The caisson wall removal is a huge milestone in this important oil and gas decommissioning and beach restoration project along a pristinely beautiful stretch of Goleta Coastline. The entire project is on track to finish by 2023.
