Wyoming School Shuttered by Gas Leak Ready to Reopen

There’s growing concern in many states about the proximity of homes and occupied buildings to active oil and gas wells. This comes after a fatal explosion in Colorado in April killed two people and was traced to an abandoned, unsealed gas line. But old wells can be a problem too. In Wyoming last year, a gas leak from an abandoned well forced a small-town school to shut down. Now it’s preparing to reopen.
