COMO, Texas (May 10, 2018) – Atmos Energy crews and contractors will oversee a controlled release of natural gas on May 14, 2018, between 7 a.m. and noon. Work will occur in the area of Crush Junction on Hopkins Co Road 2319 and in the area of CR 2329 southwest of the Town of Como. Contractors will be working on a section of natural gas pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine maintenance.
The controlled release of natural gas from the pipeline allows crews to work on the pipeline safely. People in the area may smell natural gas and hear moderate noise during the process. Atmos Energy employees will be on-site to monitor the process as natural gas is vented into the atmosphere.
Atmos Energy customers will not be affected while the maintenance work is being performed. Como city officials, police department, fire department and Hopkins County 911 operators were advised of the controlled release prior to work beginning on May 14, 2018.
