PSE&G to upgrade gas facilities in Bellmawr
Beginning in September 2016, PSE&G will be working in Bellmawr to replace aging cast iron gas pipes with new, durable plastic and/or coated steel piping – ensuring the continued safety and reliability of our gas system well into the future.
Work will take place Monday through Saturday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., conditions permitting. These upgrades are part of our three-year program to replace up to 510 miles of aging gas infrastructure throughout New Jersey. The new pipes will improve reliability, reduce the possibility of methane leaks, and enable the installation of excess flow valves on service lines. These valves dramatically reduce gas flow if a pipe is damaged. The elevated pressure of the new gas mains will also provide better support for high-efficiency appliances like furnaces and water heaters.
All work is currently completed and final restoration has taken place.
