Project update:

Atlanta Gas Light is on track to complete the Piedmont Enhancement Project by the end of 2022, six months ahead of schedule. We’d like to thank the community for their patience while we complete this important work.

Project Segments

The Piedmont Enhancement Project will be completed in segments.

Construction began in July of 2021. While the project spans several miles and will take two years to complete, work will be conducted in 1,500-foot increments. Roads will only be closed along the sections of the project path where work is currently being performed. Within these areas, one lane will be closed 24 hours a day, seven days a week while a second lane will only be closed during work hours.

Smell Gas?

Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel. As a safety precaution, we add a chemical odorant called mercaptan that gives natural gas an odor often associated with rotten eggs. This distinctive scent allows you to smell a potential leak if it occurs.

Look

Look for discolored vegetation, blowing dirt or continuously bubbling water in the area of a buried gas line.

Listen

Listen for a hissing sound.

Smell

Smell for the distinctive “rotten egg” odor of natural gas.

If you suspect a leak

Never try to find the leak yourself. If you suspect one:

Leave

Leave the area immediately, warning others in the area as you leave. Keep everyone away from the area until emergency assistance arrives.

Avoid

Avoid touching anything that may cause a spark. This includes lighters, matches, cigarettes, flashlights, light switches and telephones in the area of the suspected leak. Wait until you are a safe distance away before using your cell phone.

Call

Call Atlanta Gas Light at 877.427.4321 or 911 once you are out of the area of the suspected leak and in a safe place. Stay away until Atlanta Gas Light or emergency personnel indicate it is safe to return.
