Who are those people in my yard?
Columbia Gas of Ohio is implementing a program to protect underground natural gas lines through the use of GPS technology. The project will improve safety, giving Columbia Gas the ability to locate and access gas lines much more easily and quickly if there should ever be a problem. This investment in safety will also improve our emergency response and maintenance of our facilities.
Crews will capture locations of underground infrastructure using advanced equipment, providing enhanced precision that is not possible using traditional techniques. Measurements will be performed by Columbia Gas and contractor personnel who are trained on the use of the new technology.
