Clark County Emergency Declaration Lifted On Fuel Pipeline Issue

LAS VEGAS – When a fuel transfer problem was found in a California gas pipeline, Clark County lifted its emergency proclamation.
Following the temporary shutdown of the Kinder Morgan pipeline in California, the proclamation was issued. Even though the pipeline was repaired by Saturday, the temporary proclamation caused a panicked rush to purchase gasoline throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
Here is the official statement issued by Clark County:
Clark County today lifted its emergency declaration related to the Kinder Morgan fuel transmission issue. It is our understanding that deliveries of fuel from this pipeline are occurring to retailers across our region, though some catch-up is likely occurring. Clark County officials will continue to monitor the situation without the emergency declaration in place. We are grateful for the partnership with local, state, and federal agencies as well as with our business community. In particular, the coordination with and support from the Governor’s Office and our federal delegation was paramount. By working together, we helped to ensure that Clark County residents as well as those in Nye and Lincoln counties had every available voice and solution at the table to navigate through what could have been a very challenging situation.
