It’s National Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day!

Shout out to our hardworking gas utility crews who work every day to ensure the safe, reliable delivery of natural gas to homes and businesses.

Did you know ... natural gas didn’t always have that rotten eggs smell?

On this day in 1937, gas safety changed forever. March 18 was the day that a devastating natural gas explosion killed hundreds of children and teachers in New London, Texas. The result of that tragedy was the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety.

If you think you have a gas leak, get to a safe place and call our emergency line at (562) 570-2140.

Happy Pi Day! You might be asking yourself, what does Pi have to do with water? More than you might think.

Pi (π or 3.14) is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Our engineers will use Pi to determine the area of a pipe, the delivery capacity of a pipe and even storage tank volume.

Math rules!
