Detecting a Leak Outdoors
The National Transportation Department's Safety Board findings show that underground pipelines provide the highest level of public safety compared to other transportation modes. Leaks from a natural gas pipeline are very rare, however, it is important to know how to recognize the signs of a gas leak and what to do if there were one to occur in your area.
You may have a leak if you smell an odor that has the distinct scent of sulfur or rotten eggs.
You may have a leak if you see
Vegetation which appears to be dead or dying for no apparent reason over or near the pipeline
Water bubbling at a creek, pond, river or wet area
Dirt appearing to be blown or thrown into the air over or near the pipeline
Fire or explosion near or involving the pipeline
Any natural disaster which has caused a buried pipeline to be exposed (i.e. flood, earthquake, tornado, etc.)
You may have a gas leak outdoors if you hear a hissing, whistling, or roaring sound over or near the pipeline.
If You Suspect an Outdoor Leak
Leave the area immediately and warn others to stay away.
Call the City of Warner Robins Gas Department at 478-929-1903 or call 911.
Do not turn on or operate anything that may ignite a gas leak; for example: cell phones, lighters, flashlights, radios, vehicle ignition, etc.
Do not go near the area
Do not attempt to shut off any valves or extinguish any fires
