Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania Reports Outage in Rostraver Township, Pa.

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Earlier today, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania lost pressure to a natural gas distribution line regulator station in Rostraver Township, Pa. As a result of this loss in pressure, the company must temporarily interrupt service to approximately 400 customers to ensure that the system is safe and functioning properly.

The affected Columbia Gas customers who are connected to the distribution system will have their natural gas service interrupted while the necessary safety checks are performed and service is restored. The affected area is near the intersection of Route 51 and Interstate 70.

Our customers’ safety is our number one priority. Company technicians will be going door-to-door throughout the evening and night shutting off service individually for affected customers. Once the system has been restored, crews will then need to restore gas service for all affected customers.  That process is expected to start in the early morning hours tomorrow, Nov. 23, and is estimated to take approximately 12 hours to complete.

For customers not home during the service restoration process, door hangers will be left at their homes informing them of the outage and requesting they call Columbia Gas at 1-888-460-4332 for a service technician to be dispatched to restore service to their homes.

Columbia Gas will be working with local emergency management officials to identify a potential location for a warming station.  Once a location has been finalized, we will post that information on our website at www.ColumbiaGasPA.com and share via Facebook and Twitter.
