Neighborhood Researchers Find Hundreds of Methane Gas Leaks Across DC

Neighborhood researchers found nearly 400 active methane gas leaks from DC’s gas utility across all eight wards of the District of Columbia. Over the past year, volunteers from DC’s environmental and faith communities tested air from vents in utility access caps on DC streets and sidewalks using an industry-grade methane detector, finding hundreds of leaks, including over a dozen at or over the methane concentration at which an explosion is possible.
