UK scientist wants to investigate Gasport's gas

Everyone who hails from Gasport knows how the community got it's name -- from the gas that percolated in local streams.

A few years back I wrote a column about this and posted some videos:


After reading that article, Scott Ensminger, a local author of a few books about waterfalls and other geological formations, toured our farm to see the gas in person.

He'll be back in June with a research scientist from the University of East Anglia in the UK who has been working with a special department at that school to study the life and compounds created by natural gas seeps.

While in town, they'd like to explore other similar sites and take samples. If you are a property owner in Gasport who has some gas that appears in a stream or on ground, please email Scott to set up a visit. His address is Falzguy@verizon.net.
