The Boston gas leak issue first publicized by Department of Earth and Environment Professor Nathan Phillips continues to gain traction in media.

This time, Prof. Phillips and Graduate Students Margaret Hendrick and Bahareh Sanaie were featuredĀ on local CBS affiliate WBZ.

This past Sunday, Hendrick and Sanaie went on what Sanaie referred to as a “gas leaks safari” in Jamaica Plains. With CBS reporter and camera in tow, Hendrick and Sanaie, along with Bob Ackley of Gas Safety Inc., traveled around Jamacia Plains collecting data on the severity of gas leaks in the area, expanding on the work Prof. Phillips began over a year ago.

Their work was featured in a short television segment on CBS and in a news article posted online.
