Natural gas is delivered to more than 60 million customers by 300,000 miles of underground pipelines throughout the United States. Even if you don’t use natural gas, pipelines may be located near you.
Before you begin any digging, Texas law requires you to call 811 at least 48 hours before beginning a project. CPS Energy or other service providers will mark the location of underground gas lines at no cost to you.
If you suspect unauthorized activity either in or near a CPS Energy facility or pipeline, call (210) 353-4357 (HELP).
What should I do if I smell a strong odor of gas (smells like rotten eggs)?
- Get out of the house immediately. Don't turn any electrical switches on or off, or use a flashlight or the telephone. An electric spark from any electric or battery-powered device, or even from static electricity, could ignite a gas leak and cause an explosion. Call (210) 353-4357 (HELP) from a neighbor's house as soon as possible. Never try to locate the source of a gas leak yourself.
