Recognize a Gas pipeline leak, Click here for more information 

Sight: Liquid pools, discolored or abnormally dry soil, continuous bubbling in wet or flooded areas, an oily sheen on water surfaces, and vaporous fogs or blowing dirt around a pipeline area can all be indicative of a pipeline leak. Dead or discolored plants in an otherwise healthy area of vegetation or frozen ground in warm weather are other possible signs.
Sound: Volume can range from a quiet hissing to a loud roar depending on the size of the leak.
Smell: An unusual smell, petroleum odor, a smell of rotten egg, or gaseous odor will sometimes accompany a pipeline leak. Natural gas is odorless and remains so during transit to the distribution facilities where odorants are added to the gas to impart a distinct odor.
