Columbia Gas of Ohio is committed to ensuring safe and reliable natural gas delivery to your home or business. Just like other important parts of the infrastructure in our communities, such as highways and bridges, age and condition of our system can impact safety and reliability. While the current system has performed well, we are replacing aging cast iron and bare steel pipes in communities across Ohio with specially-designed, long lasting systems that will serve our customers for many years to come.
What do we do?
- MARK the right of way and existing utilities with flags, stakes and temporary paint. When we make personal contact with you, please alert us of any sprinkler systems or invisible fences.
- REPLACE the main line. This pipe usually runs underneath your street or alley.
- REPLACE the service line. This pipe runs from the main line to the meter that serves your home or business.
- RELOCATE any indoor gas meters to the outside of the home or business.
- RESTORE your property to the same or better condition, including sidewalks, lawns and driveways. It may be several days or even weeks between some of these steps.
