Your safety is important to us.
We add a distinctive, harmless chemical odor to the natural gas we deliver to you. This smelly (rotten egg or rotten cabbage), sulfur-based odor will help you detect gas leaks that might occur in your home, business or neighborhood.
- Don't touch anything that could cause a spark, such as light switches, cell phones or garage door openers.
- Leave the building.
- Call Alliant Energy at 1-800-ALLIANT (800-255-4268) immediately from a safe location. If gas is blowing, also call 911.
- Clear ice and snow around electric and gas meters.
- Keep snow cleared from your gas furnace and hot water heater vents (usually on the roof or the side of your house) so they will operate properly.
- Read the manufacturer's instructions so you know what type of ignition is on the furnace or appliance.
- Check the instructions and follow them exactly.
- If you aren't sure what to do, call a qualified service technician.
Hitting a buried utility line can cause injury or death. If you are planning a project that requires digging, be sure to call 811 at least three working days before you begin. You can call 811 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Utilities will mark the location of utility-owned underground lines on the property.
