If you noticed a funny smell in Grand Junction on Tuesday, it was due to a gas leak.
Marconi, an odor added to Natural Gas and Propane to alert people to dangerous leaks is what some in Grand Junction and Orchard Mesa have been smelling the past couple days. It is only residue which leaked out of some propane tanks, while workers at Van Gundy's Recycling Center were crushing them.
Orchard Mesa Middle School and New Emerson School, as well as some downtown businesses were evacuated because of the leak.
It was determined that the gas was not at a hazardous level.
