MLGW to perform maintenance on gas main
June 1, 2020
MLGW crews will perform maintenance on a gas main in the area of 3071 Stonebrook Circle (Elvis Presley and I-55). 

This routine work will occur on Tuesday, June 2 around 7:30 a.m. and last about an hour. Customers may smell mercaptan, the chemical which gives natural gas its rotten egg odor, during the maintenance.

Gas Main Maintenance and Improvements
A major MLGW project since 1992, the Division has been working on a 30-year natural gas cast iron pipe retrofit program. MLGW is working to replace more than 330 miles of cast iron pipes with polyethylene or steel pipes.

It is scheduled to be completed in 2021. The retrofit program improves natural gas safety for the public and reinforces our infrastructure for MLGW’s future natural gas service reliability and integrity, and for earthquake mitigation. To learn more, visit mlgw.com/gas.
 

MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 429,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County.
