LOS ANGELES – The Coast Guard will be conducting Operation Mystery Sheen for the next month throughout the Cabrillo, Calif., and Wilmington, Calif., areas.

Oil pollution that can cause a sheen on the water is not only a violation of federal, state and local laws but damages the environment to a point of no recovery.

Responders from Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles-Long Beach will be working in coordination with local and state pollution response officials throughout the area.

Responders will be patrolling local Wilmington and Cabrillo marinas by foot and vehicle starting Monday through Sept. 11. They will not only conduct response and investigations of mystery sheens, but also educate the marina’s operators, tenants and users about the requirement for reporting oil spills and other efforts aimed at protecting the environment, natural resources and property.
