Gas leak discovered in Edgewood

Students were evacuated from the 500 building of the Edgewood Park Apartment complex this morning after a gas leak was discovered.

Students were asked to leave just after 8 A.M. when the leak was found on the outside of the building. Donald Moore, senior vice president of Facilities and Operations, said that the gas began to leak after an employee struck a pipe that was sticking out of the ground with his lawn mower.

“It was a pipe that was previously thought to have been abandoned, but because our staff heard some gasoline escaping and smelled something they did the right thing and went in and pulled the fire alarm and notified the proper authorities,” Moore said.

South Jersey Gas made the repairs on the spot, and Moore said they also inspected other areas as well before allowing students back into the building about 45 minutes after being evacuated.

While Moore said there more than likely won’t be any cost to the university, they are looking into ways to prevent this from happening in the future.

“We may decide to invest in some upgrades to ensure that those other pipes won’t be hit by our staff,” Moore said.

No injuries occurred because of the gas leak, and Moore said the area is now safe.

    Houseboats in Echuca are ideal houseboats which have the
    accommodations that allow you to relax and explore the lake
    with all the comforts of any regular home. For instance at a time
    when anglers where sticking rigidly to the mantra of 3 to 5
    milliliters of flavour, plus 1 to 2 milliliters of intense sweetener to a pound
    of base mix or more, as measured by 4 large eggs or 6 medium eggs as a basis of measurement,
    I tried other approaches and reaped big rewards against
    much more experienced anglers. The exception to this rule
    is when fishing structure, there will always be a calm
    spot behind structure that cat fish rest in and it will be natural for your bait to settle in this area.

    The first step in preventing a gas leak is ongoing maintenance for any existing gas appliances such as boilers, water heaters or stoves. Periodically these should be checked to ensure that they are in proper working order and that all connections and gas lines are secured to prevent a leak. When a repair is needed or suggested it is critical that this be done immediately and by a professional.

    Even a casual stroll through the SEAPLEX blog reveals something fascinating about scientific
    work: moment to moment, it looks like any other kind of
    work, but the long view is of something utterly different from most
    other kinds of work. Velocity boaters like finding
    around at a quickly pace even though most fishermen want a boat
    to get to the fish so they usually shift at a slower
    pace. More important than the `Test’ strength of the
    line is the proper use of knots, discarding line when it gets frayed
    or damaged, and not trying to `hoist’ a fish into the air with your rod and reel.
