Gas Leak Forces Evacuation

American Energy Coalition - June 1st, 2009

A gas crew severed a utility gas line in Sheboygan, Wis., forcing resident to evacuate, according to a story in the Sheboygan Press. About 30 residents were evacuated from 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. as fire and utility crews dealt with "explosive levels" of natural gas that flooded sewer pipes and threatened to filter into homes, said Fire Chief Jay Lastusky. Wisconsin Public Service spokesman Kerry Spees said a contractor working on a sewer line about 8:15 a.m. cut through a 1-inch pipe that provides natural gas to 140 homes.
