The Porter Ranch Community Advisory Committee (PRCAC) was formed in December 2015 at the request of L.A. City Councilman Mitch Englander in response to the gas leak at the Aliso Canyon Gas Storage facility. The PRCAC is made up of the leaders of the key community organizations and entities impacted by the storage facility operations. The 13 member committee sets its own meetings and agenda items and does not have any regulatory or legislative authority, serving as an advisory body only. The primary purpose of the PRCAC is to serve as the community information conduit regarding the Aliso Canyon Storage facility.

The PRCAC is charged take an urgent and candid look at the challenges facing the community in light of the October 23, 2015 well leak with an eye on immediate, effective solutions and to act as a clearinghouse for gathering, sharing and disseminating information to all of those affected community members.



To improve and promote communication between all of the various stakeholders to increase community awareness, share information, and develop a regular dialogue between the community, SoCalGas, and the various regulatory agencies around the Aliso Canyon Storage facility.


The vision of the PRCAC is that by working with stakeholders, SoCalGas, and the various regulatory agencies, we would offer suggestions and solutions to:


a. Ensure safety for our residents, children, schools, homes/properties, businesses, employees, and visitors, especially related to health concerns.
b. Stop the leak as fast, safely, and effectively as possible while ensuring effective communications and garnering the best resources available.
c. Ensure the future safety of the Aliso Canyon Storage field.
d. Support a future of Porter Ranch that is thriving and restore confidence back into the community.
