Extreme cold followed by warm weather with a lack of snow-pack has created the perfect conditions for ground shifting.
SaskEnergy says in-turn that increases the chance of underground natural gas leaks.
Spokesperson, Dave Burdinuk said because of this, they are asking people to be vigilant over the coming days.
“We just want people to be aware. If you know where your natural gas line is,for most homes and businesses it’s going to be in the back alley, or at the back of the property where the utility box is, just be aware if there is any odor in the area,” Burdinuk said.
Natural gas typically has a rotten egg type smell.
SaskEnergy has a 24-hour emergency line at 1-888-700-0427.
Burdinuk added they would rather have 99 false alarms, than an unreported leak that turns into a severe event.
