MaryLee Orr, LEAN Executive Director: I’ll speak from the people’s perspective. Their biggest fear is there could be an explosion there, because they see so much of this bubbling gas and because what they can’t see, there’s also natural gas on the land.

Chemist Wilma Subra, LEAN Technical Advisor: [...] So the issue is how big is this sinkhole going to be [...] The fear is that this area is going to have to be a sacrifice zone and that these people will not be allowed to go back in their homes. Because it’s being feed by these production zone(s) of oil and gas it’s still migrating, so it’s a very active situation, it’s a very degrading situation.
