MONROE TOWNSHIP -- State DEP officials and Wyoming County EMA officials are investigating an incident at a natural gas dehydration station.

Officials say a substance used to give natural gas its odor was somehow released from one of the storage buildings after 10 p.m. Monday at the station south of Tunkhannock.  The wind then picked it up and the smell spread.

After doing air tests, DEP says the substance is not harmful to the public.

They are investigating how the substance got out of the storage facility in Wyoming County.
