Natural Gas Safety Facts
From Loretto Gas System
The following information is provided by Loretto Gas System as required
by the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002 for the education and
benefi t of the residents of Lawrence County Tennessee. This letter
serves to notify you of natural gas pipelines in your area and certain
items of general information on the proper response and actions
involving those pipelines. There may be natural gas pipelines owned
and maintained by the Loretto Gas Department where you live. While
natural gas has one of the best safety records of any energy form, it can,
if proper care isn’t used, cause possible hazards to the public. Loretto
Gas Department urges everyone to take note of the following safety
issues in order to continue to maintain the exceptional safety record we
have established and maintained in the past.
WHAT DOES NATURAL GAS SMELL LIKE?
In its pure form, natural gas is odorless. We add a harmless odorizing
agent that produces a distinct smell (some are reminded of sulfur or
rotten eggs) so that you can detect gas leaks.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I SMELL A LEAK?
If ignited by a spark in the presence of oxygen, a natural gas leak can
cause an explosion. If you smell gas in your home, leave immediately
and call our emergency service number (931) 853-6797 Loretto) or 911
from another location, such as a neighbor’s house.
-Do not use your electric door opener to leave your house.
-Do not use your phone to call us unless you are outside and away from
-Do not turn any light switches or other electrical switches on or off and
leave all gas appliances alone until you are certain that it is safe.
-Do not smoke cigarettes or light candles. Using a lighter or match
could ignite leaking gas.
HOW TO IDENTIFY AN UNINTENDED RELEASE OF NATURAL GAS
One indication would be a hissing sound or dirt or dust blowing in the
area of an excavation accompanied by the smell of natural gas.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE GAS PIPING ON
The customer is responsible for the maintenance of all gas piping from
the meter to all gas appliances. Loretto Gas System is responsible for
the gas line from the main to the meter.
For your safety, all gas piping should be periodically inspected for leaks
and corrosion and any unsafe condition promptly repaired.
Remember if a pipeline is on your property, the right-of-way must be
kept clear of structures and trees. These restrictions are for your safety.
WHO SHOULD I CALL BEFORE I DIG?
Before beginning any excavation on your property, call Tennessee One
Call at 1-800-351-1111 or 811 at least two full working days before you
dig so that underground utility lines can be located and marked. This will
keep you from inadvertently damaging any underground lines.
