About 30 barrels of produced water spilled from an oil lease in Cuyama on Sunday evening.

At 8:06 p.m., Santa Barbara County Fire Department (SBCFD) crews responded to 1848 Perkins Road, the home of E&B Natural Resources Management.

Crews discovered 30 barrels, or 1,260 gallons, of produced water had spilled. This is water that comes out of the well with the crude oil during its production.

The spill was contained and there was no extension into the creeks, said SBCFD Public Information Officer Mike Eliason.

A vacuum truck was on-site with employees cleaning the area with an inspector on the scene.

Bummer but glad to hear it was properly reported so it could be properly cleaned up.
