ATMOS PRESSURE TESTING: On Tuesday, December 11, 2018 (weather permitting), and Thursday, December 13, Atmos Energy will be pressure testing natural gas lines in Garyville. Tues Dec 11 will be in the 109 through 229 blocks of S Church St in Garyville and in the 100 through 160 block of Buster St. Thurs Dec 13th will be in the 244 through 361 blocks of S Church St along the 616 through 631 blocks of Roccaforte Ave.
The tests involve turning off gas service along these segments of pipe for approximately 12 hours. Once the test is completed, natural gas service will be turned on and Atmos Energy Service Technicians will immediately begin restoring all affected customers. The test is being conducted as part of a natural gas system upgrade. During this time, there will be a controlled release of natural gas as part of the test, so residents in the above mentioned areas may smell a brief natural gas odor but nothing substantial or prolonged. Atmos Energy has contacted local first responders and I will be making phone calls to the areas involved and also posting on communication outlets.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact the Atmos customer support center at 1-888-286-6700.
