MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Residents near Lenow Road and Morning Sun in Memphis may smell a gas odor Friday as MLGW crews perform routine maintenance.

Maintenance will start at 7:30 a.m. and will require natural gas to be vented into the atmosphere for one hour.

People in the surrounding areas may smell mercaptain in the air, which is the chemical odorant that MLGW adds to natural gas.
