Natural Gas Blow-off Near School District
PIPELINE ALERT: Energy Transfer (Previously Chief/PVR, etc.) has planned work tomorrow on the Hildebrandt tap site. [They will be cleaning the slug catcher and pig trap.] In order to perform this work they will need to blow down the line. This will result in approximately 100,000 cubic feet of odorized gas being released into the atmosphere. They are considering a flare to burn it off but at this time the plan is to vent it.
PARENTS: Please note that the school district has been notified, and our EMA Coordinator and Police Chief will be on-hand to supervise.
