Wheatley Update - Work Continues on APEC 1

With the Installation of a conductor pipe on the APEC 1 well in Wheatley completed, work crews will spend the next several days monitoring the site, finalizing plans and implementing well preparations to eventually plug the well.

Once the final work plan is established the well will be plugged with cement, as was done with the previous two wells found in the area.

There has been no gas emission at the site since July 6.

If at any time residents detect the smell of gas at any time, they are asked to immediately call 9-1-1.
