 Natural Gas

Beginning July 18, 2020, EPCOR will begin pressurizing approximately 57 km of pipeline from Dornoch to the Bruce Energy Centre.
In its pure state, natural gas has no smell, taste or colour, so, at this time, we will also be adding Methyl Mercaptan to the gas to make it smell like rotten eggs or Sulphur.
If you smell sulphur or rotten eggs in the area, 
we ask that you call EPCOR at 1-888-765-2256. While natural gas leaks are rare, they will respond immediately to any calls about an odour of this nature.

A notice and information sheet from EPCOR can be found below:
