A new Boston Globe article by David Abel title “Legislation may force utilities to fix gas leaks quicker” features research done by Earth & Environment PhD candidate Margaret Hendrick and her advisor Professor Nathan Phillips.

The article highlights the revelation in Hendrick’s research that “found little difference between the dangers of so-called Grade 1 leaks, which utilities are obliged to fix immediately, and Grade 3 leaks which they consider nonhazardous” (“Legislation,” para 3). The article directly links Hendrick’s work to new legislation that will require utility companies to repair Grade 3 leaks.
