Residents have complained about becoming sickened by the fumes from the
leaked natural gas and odorants, which reportedly can cause headaches,
nosebleeds, and other health problems. And a potential fix for the
leaking injection well is still likely months away.
According to the South
Coast Air Quality Management District, Southern California gas
Company’s Aliso Canyon Storage Facility has the capacity to store over
80 billion cubic feet of natural gas, and SoCal Gas operates about 115
injection/withdrawal wells at the site. One of those wells, Well SS-25,
is the source of the leak.
In addition to displacing residents and damaging their health, the gas
leak from the site is causing a massive environmental catastrophe by
releasing vast amounts of methane —a greenhouse gas— into the
atmosphere. The Los
Angeles City Attorney has called the leak “potentially the biggest
health emergency in the history of Los Angeles.”
