Help Prevent More Gas Leaks at Aliso Canyon

Aliso Canyon natural gas facility

In 2015 the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility in Los Angeles blew out, spewing more than 100,000 tons of methane and displacing 25,000 neighbors for several months. Measured in terms of its environmental impact, it was the worst single natural gas leak in U.S. history.

The facility is currently closed -- and it should stay closed until a study on the cause of the leak is completed. Last month the California state Senate considered a bill to do just that, but it fell short of passage by just three votes. The good news is that this bill has been granted reconsideration and will be voted on again.

We've identified your state senator as one who can cast a vote to pass the bill. Using the form on this page, take a moment to urge him or her to protect California's people, air and climate by voting yes on S.B. 57.

And if you can, please also call your senator at the number displayed on this page with the same message, using our letter for talking points.


Please take action by June 26, 2017.
