If you suspect a leak, that’s a major emergency. Skip to the section below for the things you must do right away.
Symptoms of a leak include a rotten egg smell from an odorant added specifically to make leaks easier to detect. In extreme cases you might even hear a hissing. Many leaks occur outdoors from underground lines. Here you may only notice dead or discolored vegetation, but in some instances you might see bubbling in wet areas or even dirt blowing from the ground.

What steps to take if you suspect a gas leak:
- If you suspect a leak, immediately stop what you’re doing.
- Call your local gas/ electric utility company for an inspection and, if needed, shutting off your gas. In extreme cases they may advise you to also call the fire department. Whenever there’s a leak there’s also a major danger of fire, or even explosion, from even the tiniest of ignition sources. That includes sparks from static electricity that you don’t even feel.
- Don’t flip electric switches or unplug anything, even if the light or appliance is on.
- Don’t use a telephone, not even a cell phone, inside the affected building.
- Don’t start any vehicle, and of course no smoking or open flames.
- Don’t even shutoff the valve yourself — that can actually cause a spark.
- Do leave the area immediately. A gas leak can lead to asphyxiation and even death. Early symptoms include fatigue and chest pain.
Your local utility company will determine if there’s a leak, and may shut down the gas for you, but they can not make repairs. You should have an experienced expert locate the leak and make repairs.
