Know how to detect a gas leak
Return to VectrenLiveSmart.com Home
It makes sense to trust your senses.
To help you SMELL a leak from a natural gas line or appliance, a familiar odor like rotten eggs is often added to natural gas. Or you might SEE blowing dirt, bubbling water or an unusual area of dead vegetation. A leaking natural gas pipeline might also make a hissing sound you can HEAR. If you suspect a natural gas leak, leave the area. Then, call Vectren Energy Delivery at (800) 227-1376. Click here to contact Vectren about a non-emergency natural gas safety issue.
