Dateline: Marina del Rel
The Gas and Oil Is Under Your Feet
The unfolding story of the deadly gas underneath Marina del Rey and Playa Vista as our Whistle-Blower, Mr. “X” explains how the War Department initiated storage of massive amounts of natural gas in a huge underground “cavern” during WW2. They turned it over to the Southern California Gas Company after the war. The bad news? The entire area is punctured with hundreds of old oil wells. The “safe” storage in this geologic formation is leaking, and no one is pressing the Gas Company to find out how much leakage there is, AND where it is going. Part Three of this horrific story, with much more to come.
