Smell Gas? ...

PLEASE take advantage of this EZ way to help clean the air.

If you live in or visit anywhere in the Barnett Shale and encounter an odor you suspect is related to natural gas activity in any way, the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ) wants to know about it.

TCEQ has stated publicly that they investigate ALL complaints and will dispatch a field inspector to your door within 12 hours of your complaint. Documentation is a critical first step to obtain the essential data. Your report will enable TCEQ to take enforcement action to stop toxic emissions.

Here's all you need to do:

Step 1 - Print out the attached Odor Log and Nuisance Affidavit forms.

Step 2 - Fill out the simple forms, to the best of your recollection, immediately after encountering an odor.

Step 3 - Call the toll-free TCEQ Complaint Hotline and register your complaint. 1-888-777-3186

Step 4 - When a TCEQ agent arrives, request their ID and hand them the forms. Keep copies for your records.

Step 5 - Keep a personal record of your experience with the TCEQ for future reference.

Step 6 - Repeat as often as necessary.

Read the TCEQ memorandum announcing the details:
