DEP Investigates Equitrans Leak

State Officials say they’ve found numerous violations at a Natural Gas storage facility in Cambria County following a 2 week long leak following an explosion that could be heard last month across the Greater Johnstown area.

The Department of Environmental Protection says they have issued multiple orders to Equitrans Midstream Rager Mountain Storage Facility in Jackson Township. They say Equitrans is ordered to correct its violations to prevent future incidents. One of those orders is for the company to immediately stop all earth disturbance activities and to temporarily plug 2 of its other storage wells.

DEP Officials say the company has not fully cooperated with the investigation. They say the company must also hire an Environmental Consultant.
