During a natural gas leak from this well in Aliso Canyon in late 2015 and early 2016, thousands of residents were relocated from the neighboring Los Angeles neighborhood of Porter Ranch. But thousands more were able to stay in place after Southern California Gas ordered 10,000 Air Scrubber Plus units and distributed them to residents. The devices are based on a more advanced form of an air purifier built for NASA in the 1990s, which breaks down organic contaminants in the air.
