SENSIBLE WORDS About Natural Gas Natural gas leaks are rare. But they can happen. Your senses will alert you if a leak occurs. Sight - Escaping gas affects the nutrients in soil, so discolored soil or dead vegetation near a pipeline may indicate a leak. Dirt or water blowing up from the ground may indicate a natural gas leak. Sound - Natural gas leaks may make a hissing or a high-pitched whistling noise. Noises will vary based on the line pressure. Smell - A strong odor of natural gas can indicate unburned fuel in the air. Because the gas is odorless, a sulfur based odorant is added to give it a rotten-egg smell that warns of its presence. Be alert for this odorant or any petroleum smell. If you believe a natural gas leak is occurring, leave the area immediately and notify Peoples by calling 1.800.400.4271 or dial 9-1-1. If you plan excavation work, remember to contact the Pennsylvania One Call System at least three business days before digging to have our facilities located. Dial 811. Call before you dig-it's the law. PEOPLES An eerea Uies Company SENSIBLE WORDS About Natural Gas Natural gas leaks are rare. But they can happen. Your senses will alert you if a leak occurs.
