Any one of the following could be a sign of a leak:

  • Blowing or hissing sound
  • Gaseous or “rotten egg” odor
  • Flames, if a leak has ignited
  • Dead or discolored vegetation in an otherwise green area
  • Dust blowing from a hole in the ground
  • Continuous bubbling in wet or flooded areas

What to do if you suspect a leak
Your personal safety should be your first concern.

  • Evacuate the area and try to prevent anyone from entering.
  • Abandon any equipment being used in or near the area.
  • Avoid any open flames.
  • Avoid introducing any sources of ignition to the area (such as cell phones, pagers and two-way radios).
  • Do not start or turn off motor vehicles or electrical equipment.
  • If you suspect natural gas has leaked into your house, evacuate immediately. Do not turn lights on or off, use the phone from the house or do anything that could produce a spark.
  • Call 911 from a safe location or contact your local fire department or law enforcement personnel.
  • Notify Brunswick Pipeline by calling the toll-free emergency number (1-888-410-2220) or the emergency number listed on the pipeline marker.
  • Do not attempt to extinguish a natural gas fire.
  • Do not attempt to operate any pipeline valves.
