Columbia Gas Announces Pipeline Replacement Project

Columbia Gas has announced plans to install 1,500 feet of new
plastic pipe serving about 20 customers on the north side of Mount Vernon, along Nuce Road and
Marma Drive. This project will clear a conflict with existing gas infrastructure ahead of the City’s
Dan Emmett Neighborhood Revitalization Project.

Specifically, the contractor Global Energy Partners will be laying pipe along the entirety of Nuce
Road from Mansfield Avenue east to just short of Decatur Drive, and north along Marma Drive
from Nuce to just short of Northgate Drive.

Preconstruction work has already been in progress. Residents in the affected area may notice
markers and flags appearing in yards. Those are being used to mark the locations of underground
facilities, and Columbia Gas asks that residents leave them in place until the work is completed.

Installation of the new mainline is taking place this week of June 3, 2024. Once the mainline is in
and put into service, crews will follow up with service line replacements for individual homes.
These will take about two to four hours per property and include a brief service disconnection.
Indoor meters will be relocated outside as well. Global Energy Partners will reach out to schedule
an appointment with each property owner for the shutoff, relight, and if necessary meter relocation.

Crews will temporarily restore all property to ensure safety and accessibility and then follow up with
permanent grade restoration as the project nears completion. Some of the permanent restoration
will occur in conjunction with the Dan Emmett Neighborhood Revitalization Project.

Residents can expect some traffic congestion in the work zones, but flaggers will be on hand to get
all motorists through the areas safely.

Columbia Gas asks that residents contact Ben Cutler, public affairs manager for Columbia Gas of
Ohio at 216-215-4103 to share information about buried sprinkler or septic systems, invisible
fences or cisterns, or to discuss other concerns about the pipeline project.
