The damaged well that has been seeping gas into the air of Porter Ranch for months could be plugged as early as next week.
A senior adviser to California Gov. Jerry Brown's office told those gathered at a public meeting at Cal State Northridge on Thursday the final phase to cap the well should begin Monday.
"It's almost a little numbing that you don't get excited about things until you see it or hear it, until it's final," said Paula Cracium, president of the Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council. "There's so much navigating, but it's a little bit of good news, bad news. You know, 'Hey it's fixed, but you guys have to be back in your homes in 48 hours.'"
