Orangetown Gas Leak

Orange and Rockland utility crews worked quickly Wednesday afternoon to seal a gas leak in Orangeburg, which lead to the closure of Tappan Zee High School and no gas service for forty- four customers. According to O&R spokesman Sophia Salis a contractor was drilling on Dutch Hill Road and around 2:24 PM reported that he had cut into a four- inch gas main. Orangetown Police closed the road and school officials cancelled an after school boys basketball game, and informed parents that regular scheduled buses might be delayed. Salis stated that the leak was sealed around 2:55 PM, though the process of door- to- door check- ins required to restore service customers went until bout 9:00 PM.
