OVERLAND PARK, Kan. –May 3, 2019 – Kansas Gas Service is replacing natural gas distribution pipelines in Chapman, Kansas.      

Kansas Gas Service is expecting work to be completed by the first of June, weather permitting. Company officials do not anticipate any major interruption to traffic.

“This project is a part of our regularly scheduled maintenance plan designed to benefit our customers by allowing Kansas Gas Service to continue providing reliable natural gas service,” said Dawn Tripp, manager of public relations for Kansas Gas Service. “It’s another way Kansas Gas Service can provide natural gas for a better tomorrow.”

Customers directly affected by this project will be notified by NPL, the contractor assisting Kansas Gas Service, or by a door hanger left at their home or business. The contractors performing the work will carry photo identification badges that identify them as working on behalf of Kansas Gas Service.

Some construction projects may require natural gas service to be turned off for a minimal amount of time. Upon completion of the work, a technician will need to enter the customer’s home or business to complete the restoration of service. If the customer is not present, a door hanger will be left with a number to call to request a service turn-on. If digging is required on the customer’s premises, workers will restore the area to its original condition once work is complete.
