A valve company has shut down a main water supply valve at a Canadian company after discovering an “unusual” amount of methane.
The company’s chief executive said in a statement Monday that the company’s testing indicated a “high probability” that an air leak was to blame for the valve’s malfunction.
The methane leakage, which occurred on July 22, prompted the company to shut down the main supply line, and the main line to a neighboring company, according to the statement.
The valve was shut down at 2:50 p.m.
(8:50 a.m., EDT) on Monday.
