Columbia Gas of Ohio Pipeline Replacement Information

Columbia Gas of Ohio investing more than $1 million in London as part of Pipeline Replacement Program

Replacing over two miles of pipeline to increase reliability and enhance safety

LONDON, Ohio -- Columbia Gas of Ohio (COH) is investing approximately $1 million in the City of London this year through a major pipeline replacement project. The company will upgrade over two miles of natural gas main lines and close to 150 customer service lines to increase reliability, enhance safety and reduce maintenance in years to come.  

The project is expected to start (next week/August 28, 2017,) and all construction is estimated to be completed by the middle of November. It includes work on a number of streets:

• Mound Street
• Wickline Avenue
• Antietam Avenue
• Jenkinson Avenue
• Lincoln Avenue
• Fairview Street
• Toland Avenue
• Olive Street
• West Center Street
• Sherman Avenue
• Highland Avenue
• Shady Avenue
• Richardson Avenue
• Midway Street

For customers in the project scope the construction work requires a temporary interruption of natural gas service. COH will personally contact customers to schedule the work at their residence or business. Customers with indoor meters will have their meters relocated to the outside of their premises, service lines replaced, and all property disturbed as a result of the activity will be restored. This work will be done at no additional cost to the customer.

These projects are part of the company’s larger 25-year program to invest more than $2 billion to replace over 4,000 miles of pipeline in neighborhoods across the state. By replacing the aging cast iron and bare steel pipe with new infrastructure it reduces leaks. As a result, the number of leaks have fallen 41 percent since the program started.

In addition, some of the pipe being replaced was installed prior to 1950 and the property taxes have greatly depreciated over time. Since 2008, Columbia Gas has paid close to $100 million in additional property taxes in Ohio, which directly supports local governments and schools.

Columbia Gas has more than 60 similar projects planned this year across Ohio. For additional information on the company’s infrastructure replacement projects, visit www.ColumbiaGasOhio.com/Replacement
