Atmos Energy Leak Survey

"Atmos Energy Safety Survey" Atmos SUV in neighborhood

Beginning August 5, Atmos Energy crews and contractors will be in the area performing safety surveys of the local natural gas distribution system using mobile leak detection units that measure and map methane plumes in the area. Mobile leak detection units are white SUVs with flashing lights and are labeled with an Atmos Energy logo or “Utility Contractor.” These units will be seen driving slowly in streets and alleyways at night, which ensures an accurate survey of the gas system.

As part of this routine maintenance, if a natural gas leak is discovered, crews will investigate and grade the leak. If a Grade 1 (hazardous leak) is found, immediate action will be taken to eliminate the hazard. Grade 2 and 3 leaks are monitored and scheduled for repair based on state and federal guidelines. City officials and first responders have been notified of this activity.
