MLGW News Release
 
MLGW to promote Natural Gas Public Awareness Day April 29
April 28, 2011
(April 28, 2011) - Memphis Light, Gas and Water will have staff present at several libraries and MLGW Community Offices in Shelby County on Friday, April 29, to talk to customers and distribute information concerning natural gas safety, gas pipeline awareness and digging safety.

MLGW's Natural Gas Public Awareness Day is being held in conjunction with Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam's declaration of April as "Safe Digging Month." Gas safety is especially relevant in the springtime, when many homeowners and contractors engage in digging, excavating, landscaping and gardening. Recent natural gas accidents around the country and the ensuing news coverage placed more focus on the importance of public awareness of natural gas and pipeline safety as well as public awareness.

One of the main issues addressed will be Tennessee One Call, the national 811 safe digging hotline and the "Call before You Dig" law. For more information, please call MLGW Communications and Public Relations at 528-4557.
