The Oneida County Office of the County Executive has issued a statement today that The Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company will be continuing with the repairs to natural gas pipelines that began Sunday in the West Winfield area. The work will occur Monday between 11a.m. and 3p.m.
Although the work of purging the lines is considered routine, the smell of natural gas alarmed many local residents and prompted the response of local emergency services. Officials want to assure residents of the area not to be alarmed as the scheduled repairs continue through the day today.
If residents have concerns about a gas leak, that is not associated with this ongoing operation, they are advised to call 911.
