Awareness of hazards and prevention measures undertaken
Natural gas is an odorless, colorless and non-toxic fuel. GRU adds an odorant that smells like rotten eggs to help the public detect a possible gas leak. In addition to this safety feature GRU technicians and field employees are engaged in ensuring the safety of our customers and the public.

- Currently engaged in a replacement program for older gas lines
- Entire gas system leak surveyed every five years
Pipeline purpose and reliability
