If it smells like rotten eggs, it may be the scent of safety.
Natural gas in its original state is odorless and colorless, so Elk River Public Utility District has added a distinctive chemical odorant to help you recognize it.
We constantly monitor odorant injection levels into our distribution system to insure the highest possible safety standards for our customers.
The odor smells bad on purpose so you can identify natural gas even in small amounts.
If you ever think you smell natural gas, please give us a call and we will be glad to dispatch our trained technicians to investigate the situation immediately.
Our emergency dispatchers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you in any natural gas emergency.
