A Multimillion-Dollar Track Record Of Success
On Jan. 6, 2016, the governor of California declared a state of emergency as a result of the Aliso Canyon gas leak (also known as the Porter Ranch gas leak). This leak, which took place in the northern part of Los Angeles County, affected thousands of families and homeowners in Porter Ranch. The leak emitted 1,200 tons of methane every day, according to the Daily News, and was compared to the BP Gulf oil spill.
