Natural Gas Pipeline In Lindsay To Be Replaced

KAWARTHA LAKES-Enbridge Gas we will be replacing the natural gas pipelines on certain streets in Lindsay beginning this month.

Officials anticipate construction will begin mid-October 2021, for approximately twelve weeks. Work will occur between 7 am and 5 pm. Work could be rescheduled or delayed due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • They will be completing the work one block at a time.
  • Residents and businesses near the work site can expect to hear noise caused by construction equipment, and there may also be dirt or dust.
  • Building and sidewalk access will be maintained, and we will help manage pedestrian and vehicle traffic where necessary.
  • Parking near the work site will be limited, and signage will be posted with any detours.
  • Final restorations will take place in spring 2022

Service Impacts

  • To complete the installation there will be a temporary interruption to your natural gas service (likely 3- 4 hours). We will notify you ahead of time so you can prepare for the interruption.
  • Our crews will go door-to-door to restore service at each building.
  • If your equipment/appliances do not meet safety standards, you’ll need to have them serviced before we can restore natural gas service.

How to Prepare

  • After you receive notification of your service interruption, please clear the area around your natural gas appliances. We will need access to relight your equipment when restoring service.
  • If you haven’t had your appliances inspected or serviced in a while, it’s a good time to do that now. We can’t relight your equipment if it’s not compliant with safety standards.

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Enbridge Customer Service at 1-877-ENBRIDGE (326-7434), Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. If you smell natural gas, which smells like rotten eggs, please call 1-866-763- 5427.
