AUSTIN, TX – Nov. 19, 2015 – With winter right around the corner, Texas Gas Service is encouraging customers to prepare their homes for the heating season. From safety and energy-saving measures to budget plans, the company is offering the following information to help prepare for the colder temperatures in the months to come.

Safety: Care should be taken that nothing obstructs a heater’s air intake and that vents and flues are intact and unblocked to avoid the potential of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Texas Gas Service recommends customers have a qualified contractor inspect heating and cooling equipment annually and also install and maintain carbon monoxide detectors according to manufacturer’s instructions.

If you suspect the presence of carbon monoxide, leave the area immediately and call 911. .

Save Energy and Money: In spite of the cold, customers can reduce the impact of the weather on their bills with some common-sense conservation steps:

  • Make sure heaters are properly adjusted and running with clean filters.
  • Add weather-stripping and seal windows and doors.
  • Consider lowering the thermostat at night.
  • Seal off unused rooms to prevent unnecessary heating.

Customers also may sign up for the Average Bill Calculation (ABC) Plan, which reduces the fluctuations in your bill amount each month by spreading your natural gas expenses throughout the year.

AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Gas Service is teaming up with the Austin Fire Department, Central Texas Damage Prevention Council, Texas811, Atmos Energy, and Si-Energy for a live demonstration showing what happens when a contractor hits a natural gas line.

On October 21, 2015, Texas Gas Service crews will use a backhoe to hit a polyethylene natural gas line, pressurized by air for safety.

The goal of the simulation is to promote safe digging practices such as calling 811 two business days before digging and to demonstrate how to dig around a natural gas line safely by respecting the tolerance zone, or the area immediately surrounding the line.

With the growth in Austin and surrounding areas, the need is greater than ever to call 811 before you dig – whether you are only planting a small tree in your yard or excavating a large construction site.

There is a closed morning session for emergency responders and TxDOT employees from 9 – 11 am. The second event is open to the public from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. (Media is invited to attend either session).

The simulation will be held at TxDOT south location at 9725 South IH-35, Austin, TX 78744. It is located on the east side of IH-35 across from Southpark Meadows. Take Brandt Road before the Chuck E Cheese on the frontage road and follow the signage.

EL PASO, Texas – October 13, 2015 – Texas Gas Service is beginning the relocation of natural gas pipelines as part of the City of El Paso’s street car line construction project.  This relocation could affect traffic on various streets in downtown El Paso.

Relocation of the natural gas pipelines is expected to be completed by January 2016 and various streets downtown will be affected by road closures and detours as the project progresses. Texas Gas Service will continue to work closely with the City of El Paso to minimize potential traffic concerns.

The scope of work for the relocation of gas lines is mostly limited to Santa Fe and Kansas Streets.  Work at Kansas Street and Mills will begin tomorrow, Wednesday, October 14.  To ensure the safety of pedestrians and contractors on-site, Kansas Street will be decreased from two lanes to one lane.  Mills Street from Kansas to Campbell will be closed entirely to thru traffic. 

There will be signage advising of detours.  Please allow for extra drive time for your next trip downtown, as motorists will experience delays due to the decreased lanes of traffic and the road closure.  The downtown exit may be especially congested on days with high traffic due to scheduled jury duty, as Kansas Street is the main corridor to the El Paso County Courthouse from Interstate 10.  Alternate routes to downtown include the Border Highway (from the East), and Mesa Street and Paisano (from the West).
