Gas Leak Archer City

City officials have been working closely with consultants and city emergency coordinators to make sure the residents of Archer City are safe.

On Monday, September 13th at 9 PM, a gas leak brought emergency crews to the area and have been working around the clock to make sure the gas leak is fixed.

Mayor David Levy is running on a couple of hours of sleep, but will rest well because he knows the residents of Archer City are safe. He along with city officials and radiation experts stayed up all Monday night assessing the gasoline leak.

"The radiation expert came in determined there was a need to siphon then gasoline water mixture heavy truck were brought in later in the night around 3 o'clock, but the situation was stable by midnight," said Mayor David Levy.

According to Mayor Levy the leak was propelled by the rising water in the ground as a result of the rains. The gasoline flowed down from the business across into the storm drain. The city had the area essentially locked down until Tuesday afternoon. Levy says the city has been nothing but supportive.

"We've had local businesses supporting for example our local donut shop donut time came down this morning with coffee and donuts for our emergency responders and for the crews down there working," said Mayor Levy, "we have all the right people in the right places doing the right things."

Environmental and Containment crews will be on scene until they determine the source of the gas leak.
