A winter oil spill in the Prado Dam reservoir fouled as many as 900 acres of wildlife habitat, including nesting grounds for an endangered bird, and could eventually cost Orange County water users as much as $2 million a year, officials said Wednesday. The spill has thrown a wrench into the Orange County Water District's plans to annually harvest more than 3 billion gallons of reservoir water for local homes and businesses, according to water district general manager William R. Mills.
