Columbia Gas to upgrade gas lines on Third Street

| June 26, 2019

COSHOCTON – Columbia Gas of Ohio is starting a gas line replacement project on Third Street in Coshocton. Work will begin in July, affecting about 40 customers.

The work area will be concentrated on Third Street with additional work occurring on Walnut Street.

What will this mean for residents?

  • Columbia Gas contractors will work street by street to install new main lines and service lines up to each customer’s home or building.
  • Gas service will not be impacted until it is time for Columbia Gas to connect the customer to the new gas system at their meter. For most customers, gas service will be interrupted for approximately two to four hours. Customers will get advance notice of this service interruption.
  • If the gas meter is currently inside, it will be moved outside.
  • Any surface that has to be disturbed will be restored to its original condition by Columbia Gas. This includes sidewalks, driveways, lawns and landscaping.
  • Once this work is complete, customers will have a gas system with state of the art safety features.

The work and clean-up are expected to be completed by fall 2019.

Columbia Gas of Ohio has invested more than $1.5 billion in communities around the state to replace aging gas lines over the last decade. This is paying off in safety, with leaks reduced by 40 percent.
