PIPELINE REPLACEMENT PROGRAM
To ensure that safety and reliability are maintained, we have already made significant enhancements to portions of our natural gas distribution system and we plan to continue by replacing aging underground infrastructure with new, more modern pipes in coming years. This work is part of the company’s pipeline replacement program.
The pipeline replacement program involves replacing aging gas mains with new polyethylene plastic that is more durable and less expensive to maintain. Gas meters will also be relocated from the inside of homes and businesses to the outside, and service lines replaced. Relocating the gas meter outside provides enhanced safety and reliability, easier access to gas meters in the event of an emergency or natural disaster (such as Hurricane Sandy), and easier access to gas meters to perform maintenance tasks avoiding the need for customers to be home to grant access.
This modernization program allows us to make necessary upgrades to our natural gas pipeline system with the expectation of increased safety, reliability and lower operating costs, while supporting the local economy by providing jobs. Perhaps best of all, we’re ensuring families and business owners have ready access to America’s most abundant, environmentally friendly fuel… today and tomorrow.
