State officials have approved that no gas is leaking from a Southern California Gas Co. damaged well above Porter Ranch, though that hasn’t stopped activists in a area.
They rallied once again Friday night with one demand: to close down a Gas Co.’s Aliso Canyon storage facility, where not only a now late good spewed hothouse gas into a air, though where 114 others have drawn a madness of residents.

The dual groups collaborated on countless rallies given a trickle was detected on Oct. 23 and a good was announced hermetic on Thursday.

Residents know that as prolonged as this aging trickery stays open, their communities are not safe.”
Both groups also designed to uncover support for legislation introduced by State Senator Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills, that calls for California Public Utilities Commission movement of a gas company’s Aliso Canyon storage facility.
The legislation, SB 380, calls for a PUC to shorten withdrawals from comparison wells until state gas regulators, with submit from experts, establish it is safe.
The state’s Department of Conservation announced a new set of worse contrast criteria for all gas storage comforts in California.
And it systematic that all of a 114 wells during a trickery in a Santa Susana Mountains be legalised underneath those new guidelines. Wells that destroy contingency be taken out of use and removed from others in a field, a state said.
