Wilkes-Barre, PA (September 11, 2011) – Repairs have been completed to the flood-damaged section of the natural gas system in Nescopeck and UGI crews are prepared to restore service to homes and businesses in the area. Additional crews will be available on Monday to assist in the restoration.
The following steps will be necessary to restore natural gas service to a home:
- UGI crews will need access to homes in which gas meters are inside. If there is no flood damage to gas equipment, UGI crews will enter your home and restore service.
- If there is customer-owned equipment damage and your meter has not been turned off, please call UGI at 1-800-276-2722 and crews will respond promptly to shut down your meter. Homeowners should then contact a qualified HVAC contractor to repair the equipment. After the equipment is repaired, please contact UGI to restore gas service.
