We’re updating natural gas lines throughout Kansas to keep you and your community safe, now and in the future.
You and your family need and deserve safe, reliable energy, and Black Hills Energy is always looking ahead to make sure we deliver. That’s why we’re proactively updating aging natural gas lines in your area.
Throughout 2020, you’ll see us working in your neighborhoods and streets, installing new natural gas lines. While the current natural gas lines are still safe, it’s time to begin updating these natural gas lines with modern technology. The new gas lines require less maintenance, improve our ability to precisely locate natural gas lines, and are installed using the latest materials and methods.
You may notice Black Hills Energy crews and contractors working in your neighborhood to replace natural gas lines and gas meters. This process includes locating and marking underground utility lines. You may notice flags and paint in your yard or around your neighborhood that identify where phone, cable, electric, fiber, water, sewer and gas utility lines are located.
Besides potential construction work in the area, your natural gas service might be interrupted for a minimal amount of time. We’ll contact you directly should we need to temporarily disrupt your natural gas service. Our first priority is your safety, so we may also need to enter the home in a way that complies with government guidelines on social distancing and necessary personal protection equipment.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we deliver an advanced, modern gas system that will safely and reliably serve you and generations of Kansans to come.
We understand construction can impact your life and business. We’re carefully planning our work and are committed to keeping you informed.
