Columbia Gas to host meeting about Perrysburg pipeline projectWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Columbia Gas of Ohio plans to begin a $3.4 million pipeline improvement project in Perrysburg later this month that will replace more than 35,000 feet of natural gas mainline.
The project, which will include portions of streets west of E Boundary Street, east of Louisiana Avenue and south of Front Street, will affect about 700 customers.
Columbia Gas will host a public meeting from 6-7 p.m. tonight (Jan. 12) at Perrysburg’s Way Public Library, 101 E. Indiana Ave., to provide information and answer questions from residents in the project area.
The construction work will require a temporary interruption of natural gas service for some customers. Impacted customers will be contacted via letter in advance. In addition, Columbia Gas will make personal contact with customers prior to shutting off service and to schedule service restoration.
Customers with indoor meters will have them moved outside of the home. Any meter relocation and customer service line replacement will be done at no additional cost to the customer.
Residents are reminded that all Columbia Gas employees and contractors carry and will be able to present identification cards bearing their name, photograph and identification number, according to the release.
The project is part of Columbia Gas’ plan to spend $2 billion over 25 years to upgrade its 19,000-mile underground pipeline system. The work in Perrysburg will replace existing steel pipe with specially designed plastic pipe.
