Gas Restoration Update – 6/25/12

PEARL RIVER, NY June 24, 2012 5 p.m.  O&R has restored natural gas service to 349 of the 386 gas services that the Company shut off Thursday in order to extinguish a natural gas fire in the village.

The 37 remaining services will be restored when O&R is permitted access to those buildings to relight the pilot lights. Nyack customers who are ready to have their naturalgas service restored should call O&R at 1-877-434-4100 to arrange building access for gas technicians.      

O&R was prepared to complete full restoration Saturday afternoon but gas technicians were unable to gain access to all the buildings necessary. That situation extended restoration efforts into today.
