The survey is expected to be about safety information for events such as natural gas leaks.

You can use your ears, nose, and eyes to recognize a natural gas leak in or around your house.

Here’s some information from Henderson Municipal Gas:

Smell: Henderson Municipal Gas adds an odorant to its gas distribution system to give it an odor similar to rotten eggs.

See: Dead vegetation or bubbling water near a gas pipeline.

What to do if you suspect a natural gas leak:

  • Evacuate the area immediately.
  • Do not turn off or on lights or appliances.
  • Do not light a match.
  • Do not use the telephone or cell phone.
  • Do not start or stop any vehicles or equipment.
