February 26, 2018 - Becker Well is Capped!


Summerland Beach was a scene of great joy the morning of Monday, February 26, 2018, as a barge from Curtin Maritime, Long Beach, arrived to the coastline and positioned itself to lower the construction equipment to cap the infamous leaking Becker Well. Heal the Ocean was there to confer with State Lands Commission officials, who were watching the operation from Lookout Park, and to discuss future operations to follow on the other offshore/underwater wells.
