Atmos Energy safety surveys underway in Rockwall, Heath Sept. 13-17

ROCKWALL, TX (Sept. 10, 2021) Atmos Energy crews and contractors will be in Rockwall and Heath performing safety surveys of our natural gas distribution system using mobile leak detection units that measure and map methane plumes in the area. 

Mobile leak detection units are white SUV’s with flashing lights and are labeled with an Atmos Energy logo or “Utility Contractor.” You will see this unit driving slowly in the street and alley at night, which ensures an accurate survey of our gas system. 

As part of this routine maintenance, if a natural gas leak is discovered, crews will investigate and grade the leak. If a Grade 1 (hazardous leak) is found, immediate action will be taken to eliminate the hazard. Grade 2 and 3 leaks are monitored and scheduled for repair based on state and federal guidelines.
