Utility Says Massachusetts Pipeline Replacement to be Completed This Week


The pipeline upgrade work that triggered natural gas explosions and fires in three Massachusetts communities last month is slated to be finished this week ahead of schedule.

Columbia Gas said in a newsletter to customers Monday that replacement of about 45 miles of gas mains and nearly 6,000 service lines across Lawrence, Andover and North Andover should be complete by Oct. 31 – almost three weeks early.
The company said earlier that it will not last until November 19 to restore gas service to all customers. Now he’s expecting to complete it by December 16th.

Since the September 13 incident, thousands of people have remained gas-free from thousands of people who killed a person, injured 25 people and destroyed or destroyed more than 130 buildings.

Investigators blamed the overpressure of gas lines.
