How to Recognize a Natural Gas Leak
Natural gas leaks may be detected by one of the following indications on or near our pipelines right-of-way:
1. A gaseous or hydrocarbon odor.
2. A blowing or hissing sound.
3. Dust blowing from a hole in the ground.
4. Continuous bubbling in one spot in wet or flooded area.
5. Dead vegetation (grass, shrubs or trees.)
6. Abnormally dry or hardened soil.
7. Fire apparently coming from the ground or burning above the ground.
CAUTION: Gas that has accumulated in a confined space is subject to EXPLOSION. Please stay away from immediate area of any suspected gas leak and contact the City of Zachary Gas Maintenance Department!
NOTE: City of Zachary does NOT maintain buried piping between the gas meter and the house or business. The customer is responsible for maintaining and repairing this section of gas piping from leakage. These buried gas lines should be checked periodically for leakage.
