Natural Gas Tip: How to Recognize Gas or Pipeline Leaks

Think you’ve stumbled onto a gas leak? Check for the following signs nearby:

  • a strong decaying smell
  • dirt, grass, or leaves blowing from an area around a pipeline
  • continuous bubbling in wet or flooded areas, or in marshlands, rivers, creeks, or bayous
  • a hissing or roaring sound caused by escaping gas
  • fire rising from the ground or valves along a pipeline route
