|In response to Re: Methane/Sewer gas explosion|
: I am working on a case that involves a dry mud pit in
: a service station's bay. The pit was apparently suppose
: to be filled with water, however, was not. There was an
: elbow joint pipe in the pit that was not positioned
: correctly and leaking methane/sewer gas into the bay.
: When the attendent opened the bay doors the wind forced
: the fumes toward a nearby hot water heater whose pilot light
: ignited the fumes and caused an explosion. I am curious if
: there is any information readily available to the public
: concerning the dangers of methane gas and the need to keep
: these types of mud pits filled with water? Thanks for
: your help.
