Pollutants > Gas leaks

Gas leak refers to a leak of natural gas, from a pipe or other containment, into a living area or any other area where the gas should not be. Natural gas explodes when exposed to flame or sparks and so this situation is quite dangerous.

Gas leak occurs when underground gas pipes at gas stations breaks. It often contaminates water supplies within the nearby commercial and housing areas. If such a gas leak hasn’t been cleaned up properly, it can harm the lives of people in many ways.

It has been discovered that six commercial and residential wells all through the Jacksonville area have been due to gas leak.

For years, many gas corporations have been accused of responsible for such leaks to happen and failure of reporting details of leaks immediately once they happen. In 2006, the state of Maryland sued Exxon Mobil Corporation and a local service station operator for a major gasoline leak. As per the suit, more than 25,000 gallons of unleaded regular gas trickled from a small hole accidentally drilled in a buried fuel line by a contractor during maintenance work at the station. The leak was not reported to the environmental officials until Feb. 17, more than a month later.
