Cleaning, as designed by Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health), was ordered in a ruling by Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, May 20. The Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) was ordered to pay for professional comprehensive cleaning in the homes of residents who are relocated due to the Aliso Canyon Gas Leak disaster. The court’s decision required SoCalGas to offer comprehensive cleaning to relocated residents in advance of their return home.
On Wednesday, May 25, Public Health directed SoCalGas to implement their Interior Home Cleaning Work Plan and to begin cleaning. The work plan imposed several layers of supervision and quality assurance that wasn’t implemented by SoCalGas and their contractors when they began indoor cleaning. To continue to protect the residents’ health, Public Health is in the field monitoring the cleaning done by SoCalGas and their contractors.
Pursuant to the Judge's recent order, relocated residents who wanted SoCalGas to clean their homes had to request cleaning by May 29 at 5:00 p.m. by scheduling a date for cleaning, or were deemed to have declined cleaning. For more information, visit the SoCalGas website.
Homes of residents who are not currently relocated are not addressed in the Court’s decision but are covered by the Public Health Directive. Public Health is committed to ensuring that SoCalGas complies with the directive and cleans all homes in the impacted community regardless of relocation status.
