Published 2:02 pm Saturday, October 13, 2018

The City of Americus Gas Department issued the following information.

“Due to the power outage after the hurricane, the odorant injection system injected about twice the normal amount of odorant, which is causing the extremely high call rate. The odorant is not harmful, but because of the amount of that was injected, customers are going to smell it, giving them the perception there is a potential gas leak. The odorant has been turned completely off at this time at both of ther gate stations.
