Antonovich Wants Porter Ranch Residents Given More Time to Return Home After Leak Plugged
A Los Angeles County supervisor wants residents who have been displaced by the Aliso Canyon gas leak to have as long as 30 days after the leak is plugged to return to their homes from temporary housing.
Southern California Gas Co. and the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office agreed last December that residents of Porter Ranch and other communities who relocated to avoid fumes from the massive leak would return to their homes within 48 hours.
