Anheuser-Busch Inc. this week pleaded no contest and was ordered to pay more than $53,000 in criminal penalties for a chemical spill last February that polluted the Sepulveda Basin wildlife area. The plea in Los Angeles Municipal Court stemmed from the discharge of about 6,000 gallons of a caustic solution into Haskell Creek, a storm channel that flows through Sepulveda Basin about three miles from the Van Nuys brewery.

Muriel Kotin is a bird buff who wants to share with others the vast array of birds that fly in and out of Southern California each year. Clad in jeans, sturdy hiking boots and a green vest with multiple pockets, she is off to see some of the 200 birds at the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Area in Encino. In one vest pocket is an informative book that identifies the species with color photos. Around her neck is a pair of binoculars, and on her head is a white hat decorated with numerous bird pins.

Cleanup crews Tuesday continued mopping up the second chemical spill in less than a month that drained from the Anheuser-Busch brewery into Haskell Creek and flowed into the Sepulveda Basin wildlife area. State wildlife officials said the caustic cleaning solution apparently killed a turtle and a few frogs and small carp, but that there were no signs of distressed waterfowl or other harm to the 108-acre wildlife area about 2 1/2 miles south of the Van Nuys brewery.
