Atmos Energy replacing pipes in Danville

Published 4:00 pm Tuesday, March 19, 2024

During Atmos Energy’s 2009 rate case, the Kentucky Public Service Commission approved a Pipeline Replacement Program (PRP) for its service territory in Kentucky.  This program enables Atmos Energy to replace bare steel and other aging infrastructure.

“Atmos Energy is committed to safety, it is our number one priority,” said Jimmy Dale Smith, Danville’s Operations Supervisor. “This project will begin around March 15.”

The project will replace bare steel pipes with new High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes.  Atmos Energy will replace 8,045 feet of bare steel with new pipes.  We will also replace 141 service lines, which are the lines from the street to the meter.  We will work with individual homeowners as the project progresses.  The project should conclude in late September 2024, notwithstanding any unforeseen issues.  The cost of the project is approximately $820,000.
