A rare gas geyser has put two municipalities under a state of emergency.
Gassy water is bubbling up at a golf course southwest of Grand Bend and people in Lambton Shores and Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nations are being told to stay away.
Lambton Shores’ Deputy Mayor says they’re monitoring air and water quality and so far there has been no impact to residents.
Union gas says it has no pipelines within two kilometres of the golf course.
However, two years ago, investigators believe a drilling error caused the bubbling near Rome’s airport.
The golf course will be closed for at least a week as officials investigate
