Porter Ranch residents and supporters gathered outside the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power building Tuesday to urge the department’s board to require a study on whether the DWP needs Southern California Gas Co.’s Aliso Canyon methane storage facility to provide power to the utility’s customers.
Their pleas come as regulators consider whether to reopen the facility, which sprung a huge leak in October.
