Reporting Procedures for Suspected Natural Gas Odor and Leaks
If you suspect there may be a natural gas leak in your area:
USE YOUR SENSES - ARE ONE OR MORE OF THESE SIGNS PRESENT?
Smell: Natural gas is colorless and odorless, so a distinctive, pungent odor, similar to rotten eggs, is added so that you will recognize it quickly. However, not all transmission lines are odorized!
Sight: You may see a white cloud, mist, fog, or bubbles in standing water or blowing dust. You may also see vegetation that appears to be dead or dying for no apparent reason.
Sound: You may hear an unusual noise like roaring, hissing or whistling.
If you Suspect a Leak:
Move: To a safe environment.
Call: Public Safety at x3333, or 401-254-3333. Provide the exact location of the suspected leak.
Do Not: Assume someone else will report the condition.
