Gas service interruption due to water line leak

Gas service for approximately 250 residents has been interrupted after damage to a natural gas line on Sunday, July 29. The incident occurred when a plastic water line failed, leaking into the gas line.

Southern California Gas Company crews have been working to repair the gas line and begin the process of removing water leakage. Unfortunately, gas regulators and meters have been damaged by water and many will have to be replaced. Replacements began Monday, July 30 and will continue until all customers are fully restored. While many customers will be restored by Tuesday, there may be some customers left without service due to unforeseen circumstances.

Once the meter equipment has been replaced residents affected by this outage will be contacted by a Southern California Gas Company representative to re-light gas-operated appliances. Questions should be directed to 809-0317.
