Earlier today (8/25/2016) at our Redmond District office, a scheduled maintenance procedure inadvertently resulted in release of an odor commonly associated with a natural gas leak (a “rotten egg” smell).

There has been no gas leak from our system and there is no cause for alarm. Breezes have carried the odor into the Sammamish area. If you notice this odor in the open spaces of the community, it is likely from our maintenance, and the odor will be gone within the next 24 hours. If you suspect any natural gas odor from any other source, please do not hesitate to call Williams Gas Control at 800-972-7733 or your local natural gas utility.
