PSE&G to upgrade aging gas pipes in Little Falls
Public Service Electric & Gas Company (PSE&G) will be working in Little Falls to replace a little over a half mile of old gas pipes with new piping – ensuring a continued safe, clean and reliable gas system well into the future. Beginning in early July, work will take place Monday through Friday (with the possibility of Saturday work) between the hours of 7 am and 5 pm, weather permitting.
The following streets will be impacted by the work that Public Service is doing to replace gas mains as well as upgrading the house service lines;
Ryle Ave has a new gas main, but they are planning on upgrading the house service on this street.
The signs they have posted for No Parking say 8AM until 5PM, although they have worked as late as 8PM.
If you need any other information, please contact DPW Superintendent Phil Simone.
The gas main replacement portion of the work is expected to be complete by September. The paving and street restoration is expected to be completed in spring of 2018.
“These upgrades are part of PSE&G’s three-year program to replace up to 510 miles of aging gas infrastructure throughout New Jersey,” said Joe Forline, vice president of gas operations for PSE&G. “After decades of freezing and thawing, unprotected steel and cast iron pipes can become brittle and crack. The new durable, plastic pipes will improve reliability, reduce the possibility of leaks, and ensure the continued safety of gas service for customers.”
PSE&G is committed to keeping customers in [town] informed about where and when the work will take place. Residents will be notified when work begins in their area by mail, email, door hangers and Facebook posts. Customers can find more information at www.pseg.com/gaswork.
“Maintaining our community’s infrastructure is critical to the vitality of Little Falls,” said Mayor James Damiano. “PSE&G’s investment in upgrading our aging gas infrastructure will ensure the continued reliability of our gas service. We appreciate the patience of our residents while PSE&G performs this important work in our town.”
How the work will be done
Before construction can start, the utility tests soil and digs test holes to verify the location of existing gas pipe. When this preliminary work is complete, PSE&G will begin installing the new gas lines.
