UGI to Conduct New Gas Main Work Beginning Wednesday, September 2
31 Aug 2020
UGI will purge a natural gas main in Waymart beginning Wednesday, September 2 as part of the final preparations to provide the borough with natural gas service. This process is expected to be completed by Friday, September 4.
When a newly constructed natural gas pipeline is put into service, the line must be purged of air and other contents before being placed into service. This process is one of the final steps in the construction of 44,000 feet of new gas main designed to serve homes and businesses in Waymart.
Residents may detect an odor of natural gas, which smells similar to rotten eggs, during this process. Residents with concerns or questions can contact UGI at (800) 276-2722.
