My Valley: Save Porter Ranch has New York support
“Porter Ranch residents outraged about the massive natural gal leak above their community have found some allies on the other side of the country.
A group called We Are Seneca Lake is protesting a Texas-based company’s plan to expand a natural gas storage facility and seeking approval to store liquefied petroleum gases at its property on this bucolic lake, the deepest in the Finger Lakes chain in the southwestern part of New York. . . .”
“. . . . Seneca Lake, with a depth of 618 feet, is the deepest Finger Lake. The lake is so deep that Dresden, a village on the western shore, is home to a U.S. Navy sonar testing facility.
Gas storage here would be in old salt mines that start roughly 400 feet under the lake bottom . . . “
Note – this L.A. paper, The Daily News has many articles on the natural gas industry and on the situation at Porter Ranch.

Porter Ranch, like Bayou Corne is a victim of lax oversight over the gas storage industry, antiquated rules, good-ol’-boy political cronyism and sloppy out-of-town operators who could care less about home owners or the health of the residents where they put their shoddy facilities. That’s what we think!
