 Natural Gas

This spring, we will be coming back to your community to finish connecting customers who signed up for service in 2020. You can expect to see similar construction activity as we locate underground utilities and install service lines on properties so customers can begin using natural gas.


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.

Notices and information sheets from EPCOR can be found below:
