Springfield Gas System, in conjunction with Mid-South Utility Services, will be conducting a quality control survey of the county’s natural gas system to ensure that public safety is met and sustained.
The survey will include checking for gas leaks in natural gas mains as well as in service lines around homes and businesses in select areas of Greenbrier and Springfield.
The Federal Department of Transportation and the Tennessee Regulatory Authority require that a quality control gas survey of businesses be performed annually, whereas, a survey of residential areas is required to be completed every five years.
In order to check for service leaks, Springfield Gas Department employees will need to have access to customers, properties including their gas meters. For safety and security purposes, all vehicles will be clearly identified with the Springfield Gas Department logo. Additionally, employees will present identification to the customer and explain their purpose for being on private property.
Any leaks found on Springfield Gas Department equipment will be repaired and gas service will be restored. If gas leaks are found on the customer equipment, the customer will be notified and informed as to what actions to take next.
The survey is currently scheduled to begin the first week of May 2016, and is anticipated to be completed by the end of May 2016.
