Every year, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities requires gas companies to report the location of both un-repaired and repaired gas leaks.
As of December 2021, Newton had 649 unrepaired gas leaks (yellow) and 231 repaired leaks (red). Gas leaks are measured in the streets, not the buildings. They are identified by the nearest address.
