Recognizing Gas Leaks

There are several indicators of natural gas pipeline leaks:

  • A sulfur-like odor
  • A hissing sound
  • Dirt spraying into the air
  • Continual bubbling in a pond or creek
  • Plants that seem to be dead or dying for no reason

While Duke Energy odorizes its natural gas transmission and distribution lines, DO NOT attempt to detect a natural gas leak by smell alone. Uncontrollable factors may eliminate or weaken the odor.
