Huge propane cavern may be leaking; neighbors offered relocation

Low levels of propane have been detected in soil and water samples taken on and around the site of a huge underground gas storage cavern near Milner and some residents nearby may be temporarily relocated. The cavern, owned by Enterprise Propane Terminals & Storage, is located 340 feet underground and holds 220,000 barrels or 9.24 million gallons of propane. Enterprise is emptying the underground facility in order to further study the situation. Three above ground tanks at the location contain an additional 90,000 gallons of propane each. The company detected the leak while testing on its own property. Subsequent tests on a few neighboring properties have also been positive.
