The smell of natural gas permeated the air throughout much of Iroquois County this (Mon) afternoon. But NICOR reports there’s no immediate safety concern to worry about.
The smell of gas is the result of NICOR work crews transferring the odorant into their lines. The odorant is the smell that’s added to the gas lines so that leaks are detected. During the transfer process today, some of the odorant got away from the workers and the winds carried the smell through Gilman, Crescent City, Watseka and across to Sheldon.
There is no danger to the public. Work crews are managing the situation.
