If you see white SUVs with flashing lights slowly creeping through your neighborhood Sunday thru Tuesday nights don’t worry; it’s only Atmos Energy Leak Detection Survey crews.
“Atmos Energy crews and contractors will be in (Granbury) performing safety surveys of our natural gas distribution systems using mobile leak detection units that measure and map methane plumes in the area. We will survey all streets with gas lines in Granbury,” said Elvia Espino (Ed. D.), Public Affairs Manager for Atmos Energy. “As part of Atmos Energy’s vision to be the safest provider of natural gas services, it is essential to survey and monitor our natural gas system for leaks using the most advanced technology available.”
Mobile leak detection units will be 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, Espino said.
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.
