Levels of Methane at Evanston Park Not Worrisome

The fire department chief told the City Council the levels are ‘negligible.’

Initial testing showed high concentrations of the potentially explosive gas near the park, the article says. But more conclusive, follow-up testing showed that the levels at the park, at Dawes Elementary School and other spots in the area were not concerning.
