Gas line problems on the mend
From the city of Claremont:
Gas service for approximately 250 residents has bee interrupted after damage to a natural gas line Sunday, July 29. The incident occurred when a plastic water line failed, leaking into the gas line.
Southern California Gas Company crews have been working to repair the gas line and begin the process of removing water leakage. Unfortunately, gas regulators and meters have been damaged by water and many will have to be replaced. Replacements began Monday, July 30 and will continue until all customers are fully restored. While many customers will be restored by Tuesday, there may be some customers left without service due to unforeseen circumstances.
Once the meter equipment has been replaced residents affected by this outage will be contacted by a Southern California Gas Company representative to re-light gas-operated appliances. This is a very unusual incident and emergency crews are working around the clock to safely repair the damage and restore service. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Questions should be directed to 809-0317.
