Scheduled maintenance involves odorant called mercaptan
MLGW will be performing maintenance at its Seward Gate Station, 1303 Seward Road, Wednesday, Dec. 12. Work is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and is expected to last five hours.
MLGW customers in the area may smell mercaptan during scheduled maintenance. Mercaptan is the chemical odorant MLGW adds to natural gas to give it a rotten egg/sulfur smell so the gas can be easily detected.
Depending on wind and weather conditions, residents and businesses in the area south of George R. James Road and east of North Collierville Arlington Road may smell a strong, sulfuric odor Wednesday morning.
