NJNG Anticipates Seaside Peninsula Repressurization Next Monday

New Jersey Natural Gas officials expect to repressurize the main that serves communities from Bay Head through Seaside Park next Monday, December 3. They’re still on course to restore service to all homes not damaged enough to affect safety the area by the end of December.

Information released by the Wall Township-based utility today says that crews have replaced more than half of its damaged 12-inch main, about 3,015 feet. Meters have been plugged, capped and replaced where necessary.

NJNG says the damaged main under First Avenue in Manasquan is fully replaced. Eight-six repairs and installations have been completed.

According to the company, all but 4,879 customers on mainland Ocean County now have natural gas pumping to their meters.

Repressurization is complete on Long Beach Island, with gas service now open to all but two percent of the meters – a total thus far of 14,018. They expect to complete the remaining meters by the end of today.

If you’re an LBI resident who was furnished with an electric space heater during the gas outage, but who now has had gas service restored, the Long Beach Island Joint Office of Emergency Management asks you to return the heater for distribution to those still without access to gas. They’re being collected and redistributed at the Long Beach Township Police Department.

Anyone detecting the odor of natural gas that appears to be a leak should report it by phone to 1-800-GAS-LEAK.
