GOLETA, Calif. (AP) - Cleanup teams have determined 44 percent of 96.5 miles of California coastline clear of oil from the Refugio Oil Spill.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Alexia Retallack says Sunday that these mostly sandy beaches only have trace amounts, or less than 1 percent of oil.

She says tar is naturally found through seeps at Southern California beaches and should be avoided.
