Natural gas is a colorless, odorless, gas until we add an odorant to give it that distinctive smell similar to rotten eggs. This odor is added to ensure you can quickly and safely detect a natural gas leak by smell.
Please read the "Gas Safety" tab regarding how to spot a leak.
Anyone planning to dig, drill or blast is required, by law, to call Alabama One Call two working days before beginning work. Alabama One Call will notify Cullman-Jefferson Counties Gas District and any other member utilities to locate their underground pipes, wires, or cables. Knowing where underground are located will protect you and others from harm, prevent damages and interruption of services.
The call to Alabama One Call is FREE but repair to utilities can be quite costly.
It's not only smart, it's the law!
This marking guide provides for universal use and understanding of the temporary marking of subsurface facilities to prevent accidental damage or service interruption by contractors, utility companies or any others working on or near those underground facilities.
