If you intend to excavate, you must first arrange to locate the buried gas lines at your work sites
The greatest risk to underground natural gas pipelines is accidental damage during excavation. Even minor damage such as a gouge, scrape, dent, or crease to a pipeline or its coating may cause a leak or failure. The One Call Center will provide excavators with specific details regarding precautions required.
Failure to comply with the law can jeopardize public safety, results in costly damages and can lead to substantial fine.
Carbon monoxide poisoning claims thousands of victims each year. When exhaust fumes from furnaces, water heaters, gasoline engines, generators and cooking grills are not properly vented to the outdoors, carbon monoxide (CO) can build up inside your home, building or garage. Prolonged exposure can be deadly, and small doses can cause fatigue, dizziness, and nausea. Remember, you can't see or smell carbon monoxide. But you can keep it out of your home. Take these preventative measures:
• Install carbon monoxide detectors.
• Never use a gas oven or range to heat a room.
• Have your heating system serviced annually by a qualified heating contractor.
• lf you suspect exposure, get fresh air and medical help immediately.
• Make sure flue pipes are not damaged and all connections are tight.
