RG&E Leak Surveys Help Ensure
Continuing Safe, Reliable Natural Gas Service
Rochester, NY – Beginning Monday, May 23 and continuing through the summer, Heath Consultants of Houston, an RG&E contractor, will be conducting natural gas leak surveys in Irondequoit, Chili, Pittsford, Perinton, Kendall, Hamlin, Ogden, Sweden and Wheatland. These surveys are an important tool in ensuring safe, reliable natural gas service.
Workers conducting the surveys will be checking natural gas mains as well as natural gas services on customers’ properties. Heath employees may also ask to enter a residence or business if they are investigating a leak.
All Heath vehicles will be clearly marked and all Heath employees will carry RG&E contractor photo ID. Any RG&E customer who has doubts about someone claiming to be an RG&E employee or contractor should ask the person for the name and phone number of their supervisor. RG&E employees and contractors will be glad to wait while a customer contacts the person’s supervisor.
Federal regulations require that RG&E check a portion of its natural gas system for leaks each year. That mandated work will continue to be done by RG&E employees; the work being done by Heath is in addition to the mandated work.
Any RG&E natural gas mains and services not checked this year will be checked next year.
