Natural gas does not have an odor, so a chemical that smells like rotten eggs is added to the gas. This chemical allows us to smell the natural gas at a level well before it reaches explosive levels. Other signs to alert you to a leak are blowing dirt or dust, bubbles forming in a glass of water and a hissing or whistling noise. 


​Known or suspected sources of the odor may be from hot water heaters, gas appliances, and the building heating systems. 

If you suspect a gas leak and/or notice a mild odor of natural gas: 

  • Do not use electric switches, telephones (including cell phones) or anything that could cause a spark.
  • Report the leak to Building Security at the building lobby. Do not call their cell or desk phone.   
  • Building Security & Management will investigate and if necessary, assist the utility company, and follow up with tenants on their findings.    
  • Follow procedures above for "strong" odor as necessary or that you fell is advisable for the situation.
