Vectren odorant leak at Sheridan station causing gas odor in Westfield
Vectren Energy Delivery’s odorant supplier overfilled the odorant tank at Vectren’s Sheridan Regulator Station located in Westfield near U.S. 31 and 156th Street on Nov. 15. The overfilling of the odorant caused excessive pressure to build up in the tank and odorant to leak out of the fittings. The station is located in a rural area just northwest of Carmel, and has been the cause of several gas odor calls to the fire department.
Crews worked to relieve the excessive pressure from the tank and mask the odor. The supplier will return today to install a mechanism to drain the excess odorant and permanently resolve the matter.
While this odor is traveling through the air in this area, it is important for customers who believe they may have a natural gas leak in their home to leave the home immediately and call Vectren at (800) 227-1376 or 911.
