Atlanta Gas Light is committed to delivering safe and reliable natural gas service to our customers. A construction company performing work unrelated to Atlanta Gas Light damaged a natural gas line in Angela Court in Woodstock. Our crews are on the scene working with first responders and have turned off the gas to more than 500 customers in the area while we resolve this issue. As we safely and swiftly make repairs, we are continuing to implement the public health protocols provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and urge the public to practice social distancing with our employees and contractors.
To complete repairs, Atlanta Gas Light representatives will need to enter impacted customers’ property to restore gas service and relight appliances. We expect to begin the restoration process this evening and continue into tomorrow morning. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that our technicians will need to enter customers’ property, based on guidance from the CDC, the U.S. State Department, World Health Organization, our local health department officials and Southern Company Medical Directors, we are taking additional safety precautions:
Our employees will be in uniform and have photo identification. If customers have any concerns about the field service representative visiting their home, please contact customer care at 800.427.5463. Customers can also learn more about our response to COVID-19 webpage here.
If no one is home when our representatives attempt to enter the property to restore service, we will leave a doorhanger tag on the customers’ front door with a customer care number to call. We have resources ready to respond quickly and restore service once we are contacted.
We understand this service outage may cause some discomfort, but appreciate the community’s patience as we seek to safely resolve this issue and restore service.
