Riverview fined for gas leak
The Town of Riverview has been fined for its part in a natural gas leak last year.
The Times and Transcript reports the town was charged under the occupational Health and Safety Act and the judge fined it $4,000 yesterday. The town pleaded guilty to failing to take every reasonable precaution to ensure the health and safety of any person working in the area of the incident.
The break happened in May last year while crews were doing asphalt resurfacing and sidewalk installation on McDowell Avenue in Riverview.
