Norwich Public Utilities natural gas crews had a busy summer

While the Norwich Public Utilities water division spent much of the summer wishing for rain to replenish the city’s reservoirs, the utility’s natural gas division took advantage of the dry weather to plow forward with a busy year of gas line expansions, replacements, maintenance and safety work. The new gas line, costing about $300,000, was funded with money remaining in the 2014 voter-approved $9.5 million bond to expand NPU’s natural gas system. NPU General Manager Chris LaRose said once the line is completed, other businesses and homes along the route of the new Yantic gas line also will be eligible to connect to the service, including the Yantic volunteer fire station across from the mill.
