Summerland’s Becker Well Capping Delayed

Keith Hamm

The State Lands Commission’s $800,000 effort to properly cap Becker Well — a relic oil well that has been leaking onto Summerland Beach for years — has been delayed. The agency had planned on anchoring a barge off Summerland to begin the re-abandonment work this weekend, but water quality remains poor and there’s a large swell in the forecast. The new tentative start date is February 26.
