Bad smell, but no danger at Rosemount natural gas facility

A chemical odor but not a safety risk resulted Wednesday morning from an incident at a private gas-handling facility near Highway 3 and 160th Street West in Rosemount.

Rosemount fire crews responded at 7 a.m. to a report of a valve break at the facility. The valve controlled the chemical used as an odor agent. No natural gas leaked at the facility, and there was no risk of fire or explosion.

The smell may spread from the immediate area, and community notification phone calls will be issued from the Dakota Communications Center to advise residents they are not at risk of a gas leak from this incident.

Residents with questions should call NGL Supply Terminal Co. at 612-802-2663.
