CITY OF THREE RIVERS
NOTICE
To Whom It May Concern:
To reduce the risk of excavation damage to underground gas pipelines, the leading cause of pipeline accidents, the Material Transportation Bureau of the U.S. Department of Transportation requires all natural gas system operators to establish and carry out a damage prevention program. The Railroad Commission of Texas enforces this requirement. The City of Three Rivers has a Damage Prevention Program. If you plan excavation in any public alley, street or other right-of-way, we urge you to call (361) 786-4175 during normal working hours (Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.). You will be instructed as to whether or not there are gas lines in the area where you plan to excavate. This information may also be obtained by coming into the Three Rivers City Hall. If there are gas mains or services where you plan to dig, their location will be marked with yellow spray paint or a 2’’x3’’ yellow plastic flag. Asphalt or concrete paving will be marked with yellow spray paint. There is no charge for this service.
“EXCAVATORS”
Call two working days before you dig. We are a member of a one-call system called TESS. You may contact TESS 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-800-DIG-TESS or 1-800-344-8377.
PLEASE CALL BEFORE YOU DIG! THE LIFE YOU SAVE MAY BE YOUR OWN!

IF YOU SMELL GAS
We add a disagreeable odor to natural gas to warn people in case any gas should escape. Gas leaks may occur from faulty appliances, loose connections, service lines inside or outside your home, or from gas mains. Such leaks should be dealt with immediately by experts. If you ever smell gas — even if you do not use it in your home — take these precautions promptly.
1. Call the City of Three Rivers, (361) 786-4175.
2. If the odor is strong and you are indoors, open windows and doors to ventilate. Call us from a neighbor’s house.
3. Do not turn any electrical switches on or off.
4. Do not light matches, smoke cigarettes or create any source of combustion.
However slim the chance of danger, don’t take needless risks. Play it safe. Call us if you smell gas.
