Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odourless gas that in high concentrations may be deadly. Faulty venting, parts, or plugged appliances can lead to the release of this gas. Your best prevention is proper maintenance of your natural gas appliances, and installation of Carbon Monoxide detectors on all levels.

Natural Gas Leak Detection
Cochrane Lake Gas Co-op is committed to providing safe, reliable natural gas to our members.
As part of our regular system repair and maintenance, every year we inspect our pipelines by walking two taps per year, inspecting our entire franchise every 5 years. We employ a third party to walk the natural gas distribution lines using sensitive detection equipment to check for potential underground and above ground leaks.
