The County of Lac La Biche is reporting that they’ve gotten a large number of calls concerning possible natural gas leaks in the last few days. However, they’re asking the public to remain calm.
The County says the complaints are possibly caused by higher than normal levels of odourant now present in the natural gas distribution system.
Please note that you should still continue to report all gas smell complaints to Lac La Biche County by calling 780-623-7494. Odourant level is expected to return to normal in the next two days, and will reduce the gas smell noticed in some areas.
