PARIS, Texas (July 22, 2016) – Atmos Energy crews and contractors will oversee a controlled release of natural gas on Tuesday, July 26, 2016. The controlled release will occur between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at two locations – one at the intersection of FM 2038 and FM 137, and the other location within the city limits of Paris near the intersection of 41st St. and Old Bonham Road. The Company will be working on a section of pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine maintenance operations.
The controlled release of natural gas from the pipeline allows employees to work on the pipe safely. People in the area may smell the odor of natural gas and hear moderate noise during this process. Atmos Energy employees will be on site to monitor the work as natural gas is vented into the atmosphere.
Five Atmos Energy customers will have their natural gas service turned off July 26th while work is being performed. Customers and residents in the general area, along with the City of Paris, Paris Fire Department, Lamar County officials, Sheriff’s office and 911 operators, will be notified of the controlled release prior to work beginning July 26th.
