There is a young man going around the area of Quilchena and Chapman with a gas sniffer he says that it is routine testing and that you can expect that a test sniffer will happen be about every five years in residential areas. Fortis BC tests annually in commercial applications. Leaking natural gas smells like rotten eggs and is unmistakeable.
The man has a proper picture ID around his neck that identifies him is a Fortis contractor. ( still it never hurts to call and ask for a description if anything looks out of sorts)
Call before you dig!
