Everyone should know the signs of a natural gas leak:
- Smell – To help you SMELL a leak from a natural gas line or appliance, a familiar odor similar to sulfur or rotten eggs is added to natural gas.
- SEE – Near a natural gas leak, you might SEE blowing dirt, bubbling water or an unusual area of dead vegetation.
- HEAR – A leaking natural gas pipeline might make a hissing sound you can HEAR.
If you notice any of the above signs, do not try to stop or repair the leak yourself or use anything that might create a spark, such as smoking or a cell phone. Instead, leave the area immediately and call Due Energy and 911 for emergency response. Wait from a safe distance for the emergency crew to investigate the situation and follow their instructions before returning to the area.
