Cleaning Signup Has Been Extended for Relocated Residents

LOS ANGELES – Relocated residents now have until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 29 to register for cleaning. Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) strongly encourages residents to request cleaning services being offered by Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas). Relocated residents who do not sign up by the deadline will be deemed to have declined cleaning.

“The County will take any action necessary to ensure that residents who are unable to sign up, due to no fault of their own, do not have to return home before their homes are cleaned,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

Relocated residents should continue scheduling their appointments for cleaning according to the Court’s ruling by contacting SoCalGas:

Public Health issued a Directive to SoCalGas to offer comprehensive cleaning to all homes in Porter Ranch, all homes of relocated residents, and all homes within five miles where residents experienced symptoms. SoCalGas has not followed through with this Directive. The court ruling on May 20 specifically applies to currently relocated residents. Public Health is committed to ensuring that SoCalGas complies fully with the Directive and cleans all affected homes in the impacted communities regardless of relocation status. More information is forthcoming for residents who are not part of the relocation program.

Public Health, its partner agencies and scientific experts will continue to monitor environmental conditions and health surveillance data, and will continue to intervene as may be necessary to protect health in the communities affected by the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility.
