An ounce of prevention is worth a lot of pounds of R-22
The sky isn’t falling but the ozone layer got a little thinner this month, when the Proctor ice arena lost the bulk of its R-22 refrigerant because of a leak.
For Proctor, that means its association will have to find funds to repair the leak and replace up to 800 pounds of the R-22, a substance known to cause damage to the ozone layer and which won’t be available for purchase in the United States after 2020, thanks to the Clean Air Act.
