2016 Porter Ranch Leak Raises Concerns Elsewhere
In the early 1990's Patricia McPherson, President of Grassroots Coalition, became concerned about oil and gas leaks in Playa del Rey, California. With the help and guidance of Dr. Bernard Endres, an oil field gas migration expert, author and attorney, her interest expanded into oil and gas fields throughout California and continues to this day.
Nathan Phillips, a pioneer of utilizing the PICARRO methodology of ambient methane air testing on streets in Boston, worked with Grassroots Coalition to provide the PICARRO graphics of ambient air methane monitoring for the Los Angeles basin. Above, is one graphic, among many in the Ballona Wetlands area, that reveal high levels of methane out-gassing along Jefferson Blvd. The catch basin, aka freshwater marsh, is seen above, showing the first skyrocketing levels/spikes of methane. The high levels/spikes continue across the Playa Vista site. To the west of Lincoln Blvd. larger spikes of methane can also be seen. (2014)
