 DC Water Tunneling and Bloomingdale Area Replacement Project
Updated December 9, 2013
Washington Gas
is working in conjunction with the DC Clean River’s –
 First Street Tunnel Project and will be relocating natural gas mains in the Bloomingdale area. Washington Gas will also take this opportunity to upgrade mains and services as we work to provide safe and reliable natural gas service. The selection of mains and services to be replaced is based on a number of criteria including age of pipe and leak history as well as other factors. Washington Gas is currently working on Part 2 of Phase One of this Project. Phase 2 will be scheduled in coordination with DC Water in conjunction with the overall project plan.

What residents should expect
Part 2 Phase One:
Washington Gas is currently working on
First Street between U and V Streets.
Crews will install a new plastic gas main under the sidewalk in the
west side
of this block.
Main and services on the east side of the block will be scheduled for replacement at a later date.
The new main will be tied-in to an existing main and charged with gas.
The mains replacement is scheduled to be complete in two weeks, weather permitting.
Service crews will then start the replacement of existing services.
Prior to the actual start of the service replacement, customers will be contacted by a technician to schedule the date of their service replacement.
Every effort will be made to minimize disruption to homeowners’ properties.
Gas will be off during the service replacement, but no longer than one day.
Relighting of gas appliances will be done after the service replacement is completed.
Customers must allow the service crews access to all gas appliances to ensure a safe restoration of gas service.
Construction crews will do temporary property and sidewalk restoration following each service replacement.
Final restoration of property and sidewalk will commence within approximately 30 days after all main and services on the block are completed as weather conditions allow.
Washington Gas will work to restore the area to as closely to as-found condition as is possible and will work with individual residents to ensure proper restoration.
Please refer to the Washington Gas notification letter for more information on this project and on restoring your new gas service.

Infrastructure Relocation and Improvement Project
FIRST STREET GAS MAIN AND SERVICE IMPROVEMENTS Together with DC Water First Street Tunnel Project
Streets Affected
 First St NW Adams St We constantly study our gas pipeline system to be sure it meets our service expectations
in neighborhoods both old and new. As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure the safest, most reliable delivery of natural gas to all of our valued customers,
we will be replacing portions of our pipeline system
 in communities across Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
Your neighborhood is one that will benefit
. The pipelines that bring natural gas into your home or business are often made of steel or cast iron. Just like other important parts of the infrastructure in our communities, such as highways and bridges, age and condition can impact their safety and reliability. While your current system has performed well, it is now time to replace the pipelines, usually with much longer lasting, specially-designed, plastic pipe.
