Project Details

The new pipeline will be installed in three phases and is expected to take two years to complete. The first phase in DeKalb County was installed in 2023. The next phase in Gwinnett County is expected to begin in early 2024.

    Project Impact

    Lane closures along Buford Highway will be needed to complete the work. As with all our projects, safety is a top priority. We will make every effort to minimize inconveniences to property owners and community members along the route. Businesses and residents directly affected by construction work will be notified prior to work in their area.

    Smell Gas?

    Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel. As a safety precaution, we add a chemical odorant called mercaptan that gives natural gas an odor often associated with rotten eggs. This distinctive scent allows you to smell a potential leak if it occurs.

    Look

    Look for discolored vegetation, blowing dirt or continuously bubbling water in the area of a buried gas line.

    Listen

    Listen for a hissing sound.

    Smell

    Smell for the distinctive “rotten egg” odor of natural gas.

    If you suspect a leak

    Never try to find the leak yourself. If you suspect one:

    Leave

    Leave the area immediately, warning others in the area as you leave. Keep everyone away from the area until emergency assistance arrives.

    Avoid

    Avoid touching anything that may cause a spark. This includes lighters, matches, cigarettes, flashlights, light switches and telephones in the area of the suspected leak. Wait until you are a safe distance away before using your cell phone.

    Call

    Call Atlanta Gas Light at 877.427.4321 or 911 once you are out of the area of the suspected leak and in a safe place. Stay away until Atlanta Gas Light or emergency personnel indicate it is safe to return.
