Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania to Invest $611,000 in Slippery Rock Township as Part of Pipeline Infrastructure Project

Thursday, March 02, 2017

Natural gas customers in Slippery Rock Township, Butler County, will soon benefit from Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania’s $611,000 infrastructure replacement project, which began in late February.

To ensure the delivery of safe, reliable and efficient natural gas, more than 4,400 feet of underground pipe will be replaced, affecting customers along SR 108, Christley Lane and Miller Road. Construction will occur between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Lane closure may be possible during work hours. The project is expected to last through late spring, weather permitting.

Three customers will experience a temporary service interruption. Columbia Gas will personally 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. This work 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 they can call 1-888-460-4332 for Columbia Gas employee verification.

From 2007 – 2016, Columbia Gas invested nearly $1.35 billion in the modernization and expansion of its distribution system in Pennsylvania. Of that amount, approximately $1 billion was dedicated to replacing 826 miles of priority pipe. In 2017, Columbia Gas will invest approximately $260 million in Pennsylvania, with more than $200 million being invested to upgrade aging underground infrastructure.
