The City of Pacifica re-opened four beaches Friday. City officials decided to close all beaches on Tuesday, after public works employees found tar balls on Esplande Beach. Since then, Cosco Busan contractors cleaned Esplande and employees from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Fish and Game, and the Pacifica public works department inspected the beach, according to a city press release.
