Montana-Dakota Utilities will replace existing natural gas main pipelines and service lines in a portion of Lead and Central City over the next several months. The replacement project is an on-going integrity management process to ensure the safety and reliability of the natural gas system. Through an evaluation, Montana-Dakota identifies sections of pipe for replacement based on physical and operation & maintenance components.
The Lead and Central City project is expected to begin on June 1 and will take approximately two to three months, depending on weather conditions and any other unanticipated delays. The work will require a short interruption of natural gas service for customers. A company representative will contact affected customers to schedule a brief shut off and then relight of appliances.
