It makes sense to always trust your senses.
Clean, efficient and nontoxic, natural gas is one of the safest, most environmentally friendly fossil fuels in use today. While incidents are rare, it’s still important to know the signs of a natural gas leak—and to trust your senses.

To help you SMELL a leak from a 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 gas leak, leave the area. Then, call your local natural gas company or 9-1-1. Click here for a list of natural gas companies.

Call before you dig—it’s the law!
Remember to contact Indiana811, at least two working days before digging on your property.
