Mobile Gas Main and Services Survey
Norwich Public Utilities has contracted with Precision Pipeline Solutions (PPS) to conduct its annual mobile natural gas main survey and patrol. PPS staff will be driving a silver Chevrolet Colorado pick-up truck with a New York license plate. The truck is equipped with signage identifying it from PPS, it is marked as a survey vehicle (on the rear of the vehicle) and will be labeled as a contractor working for NPU. The driver will also have a badge available identifying him as a contractor working for NPU.
“Surveying our natural gas pipeline is necessary component of our annual safety plan,” stated Chris LaRose, Operations Division Manager. “Surveying the natural gas lines allows us to find leaks and schedule necessary maintenance before any serious problems occur.”
PPS will be driving slowly over streets that have gas mains, with occasional stops as necessary. The contractor will be walking throughout the commercial districts to survey the gas services, and will need access to any inside gas meters. If access is not available, a card will be left behind informing the customer to call PPS to schedule the inside meter inspection. PPS will also be mailing survey information to customers.
This portion of our annual gas survey will extend into September 2018.
Anyone with concerns or questions about this project or PPS’ presence can contact Norwich Public Utilities at 860-887-2555, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
