Have Older Natural Gas Services Breached a Sewer Lateral?
Wednesday, June 25, 2014 | 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Online

Please register now for the next AEGIS webinar, “Have Older Natural Gas Services Breached a Sewer Lateral?”  which will take place on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, Eastern Time.

Sewer laterals that have been breached by a natural gas service installed with trenchless technology have caused several incidents across the country when the home owner attempts to have a clogged sewer lateral cleaned out and the natural gas service is inadvertently cut.

Today, natural gas companies have taken precautionary measures to better educate excavators, sewer lateral clean out contractors and home owners, on the potential hazards associated with this problem and the steps that can be taken to prevent it.

But what about the natural gas services installed in the past using trenchless technology that may have breached a sewer lateral? How many of them do you have?  Are they an incident waiting to happen?

In this webinar, a representative of Southwest Gas Company will detail their attempts to inspect natural gas legacy services that were installed using trenchless technology in an effort to be certain no sewer lateral was breached. You will learn how they expect to prevent this type of problem in the future by instituting construction work rules to identify and locate sewer laterals prior to excavation.

Joel Martell, P.E.-Manager, Engineering Staff at Southwest Gas Company will be the presenter for this webinar.

One week prior to the webinar, you will receive instructions for participating.
