A 6 inch natural gas main is necessary to fuel the generators necessary to maintain 10 megawatts of service to keep the Belton Water Treatment Plant in service during a prolonged power outage. A 2 inch gas line that resides within the existing government easement will be replaced with the larger new main. A preliminary survey of the route has been completed with a final survey scheduled to begin within the next few weeks. An updated schedule will be available soon with detailed tasks and estimated timelines.
A customer meeting was held Monday evening, January 30th at 6pm for those property owners who we have easement with for the gas line path. Despite the weather 6 owners or their representatives were in attendance and were able to ask questions and view the exhibits detailing the location of the government easement and the general gas line path. Once the final survey is complete and before final design is complete another customer meeting will be scheduled. The gas line contractor is K&K Construction, led by Mr. Steve Kirksey.
Before workers enter your property you will see a door or gate hangar similar to this attachment. It will have the main contacts for Ricky Garrett and Mr. Kirksey, but should also have specific contact information for the supervisor on site.
