Columbia Gas of Ohio to begin pipeline improvement project
Utility investing $8.8 million in three Steubenville neighborhoods in 2014
Columbia Gas of Ohio will begin major pipeline improvement projects in three Steubenville neighborhoods in 2014. The company will replace more than 50,000 feet of natural gas mainline and more than 1,260 customer service lines in the Sunset Boulevard, Maryland Avenue and Rosswell Avenue areas of Steubenville.
As part of our commitment to ensure the safest, most reliable delivery of natural gas to all of our valued customers, we will replace existing steel pipe with longer lasting, specially-designed plastic pipe.
The construction work requires a temporary interruption of natural gas service. 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. An outdoor meter eliminates the risk of shut off due to access issues, and provides first responders with easy access to the meter during an emergency. This is a safety enhancement and a convenience to our customers. Any meter move out and customer service line replacement will be done at no additional cost to the customer.
Please see maps below that show the areas in which we will be working.
