Atmos Energy replaces pipes in Greeley – Greeley Tribune

Atmos Energy began replacing lines this year, with plans to install approximately 353 new natural gas service lines.

Atmos has planned four pipeline replacement projects:

  1. Project 1, which began Monday and will run through May, will target certain neighborhoods east and southeast of the University of Northern Colorado campus.
  2. Project 2, from May 23 to June, will cover some homes north of Project 1.
  3. Project 3, from June 27 to August, covers some customers south of Project 1.
  4. Project 4, running September 12 through October, will cover select homes at Northeast US 34 and 35th Avenue.

The project aims to increase the safety and reliability of Atmos’ natural gas system while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to a press release.

“Pipeline replacement reduces leaks and methane emissions,” Atmos spokesman Kurtis Paradisa said in the statement. “We track and report greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule, which requires reporting of greenhouse gas data and other information. relevant information from major sources and suppliers in the United States. In addition, all of our operating divisions report to various state agencies that have environmental jurisdiction over our activities.

Crews will replace natural gas lines and service lines that connect to customer gas meters. Door tags will be placed on the homes of affected customers before work begins, and construction signs will be placed in affected neighborhoods.

“We are working closely with City of Greeley officials and our local fire department to minimize any disruption that may accompany these upgrades,” Paradisa said.
