Con Edison has a comprehensive plan for maintaining and enhancing the integrity of natural gas pipelines. For more information, click here.
You can help protect our natural gas pipelines and other underground facilities from damage while digging. Call 811 two to ten days before starting any excavation activities on public or private property.

Never extinguish a pilot light. Blowing out the pilot doesn't stop gas from escaping. Don't create a gas leak to save a few pennies.
Do not try to heat rooms with your range or oven. These appliances aren't designed for space heating. Using a range or oven can cause a fire. It can also deplete oxygen levels and cause a buildup of lethal carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas that can cause serious illness or death if inhaled in large concentrations for even a short period of time.
To prevent combustible gases from entering a building through sewer lines, make sure that indoor sewer line caps are intact and securely attached.
Small amounts of carbon monoxide are produced whenever fuel such as natural gas, oil, coal, or wood is burned. If your heating system is not working properly, these small amounts can build up over time to harmful levels.
Symptoms include headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, chest pain, agitation, confusion, irritability, fatigue, drowsiness, or loss of consciousness. If you suspect exposure to carbon monoxide gas, get into the fresh air immediately and seek medical attention.
