Gas Safety – Rolling the Dice February 03 2020
Gas Leaks Allies has produced the report "Rolling the Dice: Assessment of Gas System Safety in Massachusetts." On the report's landing page they write:
While the gas distribution system in Massachusetts is largely buried underground, the dangers of relying on gas are all around us. For many, memories of gas explosions and fires fade into the past. Single incidents, while they happen regularly and expose multiple hazards, aren’t connected in media reports. Even community-wide disasters like the collapse of the gas system in the Merrimack Valley can slip from public attention.
Public safety, health, and climate are all at risk from leaking gas and the impacts of methane. Meanwhile, money from both ratepayers and shareholders is being wasted by investing in a dangerous system.
