BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern County officials are demanding answers on when residents in an Arvin Neighborhood will be allowed to safely return home.
An Arvin City Council meeting, Tuesday night, left residents and leaders fishing for even more answers.
"When the homeowners could return? What potentially were they exposed to? What was the duration of the leak?" asked Director of Public Health, Matt Constantine.
Eight homes on Nelson Court were evacuated March 18th due to a dangerous gas leak.
County leaders said they hoped to get answers on what data has been collected at the contaminated site, yesterday. Now they are expecting to get answers in the next 24 hours.
County lawyers are looking into whether the data collected by the gas company, Petro Capital Resources, is privately owned by the company. If not, they said they will get a hold of the information and release it to residents.
"We don't want this to go into litigations or lawsuits..we just need to work together..we're one community," said District 5 Supervisor, Leticia Perez.
