TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – July 14, 2014) – Enbridge Gas Distribution plans to vent natural gas for a short period of time between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday July 15 – weather permitting.
People in the area of Innes Road between Highway 417 and Blair Road in Ottawa may notice the smell and sound of natural gas venting as it is released in a safe and controlled manner.
