Please be informed of the following information provided by PECO Gas Operations regarding the upcoming project on Evergreen Rd between Hillside Rd and Orchard Rd.
Every day, PECO delivers innovation and advances smart energy to provide safe, reliable, affordable and clean energy for our customers and the communities we serve. As part of our commitment, we are working to upgrade our natural gas equipment and improve service in your neighborhood. This work includes replacing existing natural gas main and/or service lines with new underground pipe, which enhances safety, is more durable and improves service reliability.
If you are not currently using natural gas and are interested in learning more about the conversion process, please call 866-685-5665.
Work is expected to begin on or after 10/8/18 from 7AM to 4PM on Evergreen Rd between Hillside Rd and Orchard Rd. Work may occur in roadways as well as on sidewalks and potentially on your property. We anticipate the main installation portion of this project will be completed in 2 months.
To ensure your safety and the safety of our crews, we may need to temporarily shut off natural gas service for a short period – approximately 4 to 8 hours – while we install the new service line to your home. You will need to provide access to your natural gas appliances or equipment in your home so we can perform this work, and later that day to restore service and relight any appliances.
At this time we also will be relocating any indoor natural gas meters to the exterior of customer homes. All Pennsylvania natural gas utility companies are required by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to relocate indoor natural gas meters to the exterior of customer properties. If our meter is located inside your home, you will need to provide access so this work can be completed.
This work will be performed by Utility Line Services Inc., a qualified PECO contractor. If you have any questions regarding this project and for scheduling purposes, please contact Rich Brunner of Utility Line Services at 215-430-1503.
Any areas impacted on your property will be repaired, the streets will be repaved, and all areas will be restored to their original condition. We will begin to restore your property immediately following the completion of our work to install the new natural gas equipment. Work to repair and repave area roadways will begin within 30 days following the completion of the natural gas main and service line installation work, weather permitting.
We will work to minimize the impact this project will have on you and your neighbors and thank you for your cooperation.
