Leak Recognition & Response

Leak Recognition and Response

SMELL - Natural gas is colorless and odorless. We add a distinctive, pungent odor so that you'll recognize it quickly (not all gas transmission pipelines are odorized).

SIGHT - You may see a white cloud, mist, fog, bubbles in standing water, blowing dust, or vegetation that appears to be dead or dying for no apparent reason. 

SOUND - You may hear an unusual noise like roaring, hissing, or whistling.

What Should You Do if You Suspect a Gas Leak

  • MOVE to a safe environment.
  • DO NOT strike a match, use telephones, switch on/off appliances, lights, or even a flashlight in the area where you smell gas. These items can produce sparks that might ignite the gas and cause an explosion.
  • CALL your Local Distribution Company immediately
  • DO NOT assume someone else will report the condition. Provide the exact location, including cross streets.

To Report a Gas Leak

From a safe location, contact your local natural gas utility.
