Witness For SoCalGas Identifies Chemicals That May Cause Health Problems For Porter Ranch Residents

LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a declaration submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of SoCalGas, Mr. Robert Ettinger asserted that “airborne chemicals from background outdoor sources, unrelated to the leak, cause eye and throat irritations.” The chemicals identified by Mr. Ettinger include ammonia and formaldehyde. Attorneys for the residents of Porter Ranch learned that records submitted to the state by SoCalGas regarding the Aliso Canyon facility show massive historical releases of formaldehyde and ammonia. The records, however, are not current. There is sporadic data after 2006 and no data from 2015. The attorneys asked SoCalGas to provide copies of all historical and current test data regarding known toxins by Monday, May 2, 2016.
