Alagasco is currently in the process of replacing pipelines in certain areas of the natural gas system.
This replacement project will be ongoing, and we would like to keep our customers informed of our progress along the way.
While we strive to keep inconvenience as minimal as possible, digging up dirt is well - dirty sometimes. Alagasco is coordinating all contractor efforts to ensure this project is minimally invasive on you, your family and neighborhood.
Projects will be added on an ongoing basis, check this page often for updates.

Here is a step-by-step of what will be done:
Street Pipeline Replacement: The pipeline running alongside and sometimes under the streets will be replaced. A technique called boring will be used, where possible, to prevent driveways and roads from being damaged. Boring uses a drill to create a pathway for the pipe, so the pipe can then be slid into place.
Service Pipeline Replacement: Service pipelines run from the street pipeline to individual residences. Service pipelines will be replaced once the new street pipeline is installed.
Original Pipeline/New Pipeline Conversion: When the new street pipeline and new service pipelines are in place, Alagasco will then redirect gas flow from the original pipeline to the new pipelines. When this process occurs, the gas meter connected to the piping in your home will be disconnected from the original pipeline and connected to the new pipeline. Because of the swap over, gas to your home will be turned off. To restore service to your home, Alagasco technicians will need to gain access to your home to relight all pilot lights and check each appliance for safe operation. We will coordinate this with you in advance of the conversion process.
Yard Restoration: Once the construction is completed, it is our goal to restore your yard, common areas and neighborhood back to the way it was. We use a quality landscaping contractor to ensure this occurs.
