Columbia Gas plans pipeline replacement in Bethel Park, Peters
Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania plans to replace natural gas pipelines for some customers in Bethel Park and Peters Township as part of the company’s $1.69 million infrastructure replacement project that began in late January.
Nearly 10,000 feet of underground pipe will be replaced, affecting customers along Clifton, Irishtown, Maple Spring, Braun and Irishtown Extension roads.
Work is expected to last through late 2017, weather permitting, and will take place weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Clifton, Irishtown and Braun roads; and weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., along all other affected roads.
Nearly 100 customers will experience a temporary service interruption. Columbia Gas will contact these customers to schedule service restoration. Customers with indoor meters will have their meters relocated to the outside of the premises and their service lines replaced as well, which will be done at no additional cost to the customer.
All company and contract employees carry photo ID badges identifying them as Columbia Gas employees or contractors. Customers are encouraged to ask for ID before allowing anyone into their home, or call 888-460-4332 for Columbia Gas employee verification.
