Gas Main Replacements Under Way

PSE&G is replacing 250 miles of low-pressure, cast iron gas mains that sustained water damage in either Irene or Sandy. In 2014, the utility installed over 98 miles of new pipe in 34 towns throughout New Jersey. Work will continue through 2015.

In addition to replacing the cast iron mains with ones made of plastic, PSE&G is upgrading older service lines with plastic piping that brings gas to individual homes and businesses. The utility will apply for any necessary permits before work can begin in a particular municipality, and work with local officials to minimize traffic and other disruptions.

For the convenience of residents, PSE&G repairs the roads with temporary pavement until the ground has been allowed to settle. This takes approximately 45-90 days, depending on the season and temperature. PSE&G then restores the roads with permanent pavement in accordance with municipal ordinance and each town’s paving requirements.

PSE&G representatives have reached out to municipal officials in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Passaic and Somerset counties to discuss the timetable for the work and inform residents about the construction activity.
