Recognizing Gas Leaks

Not all gas has been odorized, so do not attempt to detect a natural gas leak by smell alone. Use your senses of sight and hearing as well, and be alert for these warning signs.

  • A distinctive, sulfur-like odor
  • Continuous bubbling in water
  • A hissing, whistling, or roaring sound
  • Dead or dying vegetation (in an otherwise moist area) over or near a pipeline
  • Dirt or water being thrown into the air
  • An exposed pipeline after an earthquake, fire, flood, or other disaster
