Al­t­a­gas has com­pleted re­pairs to a leak in Rosedale.

Crews were on site on Tues­day evening, Jan­uary 2 in­ves­ti­gat­ing a re­port of the scent of gas. This is the same neigh­bour­hood where a home was de­stroyed by a nat­u­ral gas ex­plo­sion in 2005.

“Some­one smelled gas and then called us, that is what they are sup­posed to do” said Greg John­ston, pres­i­dent of Al­t­a­gas Util­i­ties. “We un­der­stand they have been smelling it for a cou­ple of weeks, so it would be a lot bet­ter if peo­ple called the first time they smelled gas.” The crew took ac­tion to find the leak.

“We have dug up the gas main and squeezed it. It is a plas­tic main, so we can squeeze it a with large clamp, we have iso­lated the main so we know there is no gas leak­ing,” said John­ston.

They have run over­ground lines to af­fected homes to con­tinue their gas ser­vice while they in­ves­ti­gated.

Crews were able to pin­point the leak and com­plete the re­pair suc­cess­fully.

Al­t­a­gas crews were in Rosedale last week to re­pair a leak.
