Basics of Natural Gas
- Natural gas is an excellent source of energy for your home or business at very low costs. It is reliable and safe for the environment, but like all sources of energy it must be used wisely.
- Natural gas is a non-toxic and colorless gas which is lighter than air. As a very important precaution, natural gas being piped to your home or business has a harmless odor very similar to rotten eggs that you can easily detect even the smallest amount of gas that may escape.
- Because natural gas pipelines are underground, line markers are used to indicate the "approximate" location of our lines. However, these line markers do not indicate how deep the pipeline is buried.
