Greenville Utilities is conducting an inspection of natural gas pipelines.
To maintain the safety of its natural gas pipelines, GUC inspects all portions of the gas system in accordance with federal, state, and local guidelines to ensure compliance, system operation, and public safety.
In the coming weeks, people living along or near gas pipelines may notice a contractor from Southern Cross Utilities Inspection Services conducting the inspection for GUC, looking for possible leaks.
Their work involves walking around roads, fields, and yards.
Each contractor will have identification and will not need access to any homes, businesses, or offices, nor will they ask for any money or personal information.
GUC maintains more than 1,100 miles of gas pipeline in Pitt County, safely transporting natural gas. Since gas pipelines are usually buried underground, it may not be obvious that a pipeline is near you.
