While I expect no less from Ace on a subject like this....Shan your onto something here!!
The repair costs to fix the problem can sometimes be small on the grander scale. It's the environmental cleanup costs that sky rocket. The clean ups can take 15, 20, 25+ years to clean it up...
Not to mention the remediation systems that we have to install and hire a envirnmental company to maintain.
I know, first hand, I have been on many leak sites and go thru tons of training every year. Training in repair, containment, fire, and clean up. We just had a training about a month ago and I had to complete a repair to a simulated break on a pipeline. I even had to wear a complete SCBA system with air tank and all. That included hand digging and the repair.
All of which would be required in a real scenario and the contractor would have to pay for finacially if he was still alive...
VERY VERY DANGEROUS!!
