Nicor Infrastructure Work Will Affect Some Areas

The areas impacted by recent gas main replacement activities for Nicor Gas are scheduled for restoration in May and June. Work will include restoration of sidewalk, parkways, and pavement patches. Nicor has recently replaced gas main along the north and east sides of Wheaton at various locations.

Nicor Gas, or its contractor NPL, will contact you to schedule an appointment to move your natural gas meter outside and reconfigure your inside piping. Your natural gas will remain off for approximately three hours. If there is more than one meter, the process may take longer. As a safety measure, Nicor will remove or seal the retired natural gas line at the point it enters your property.

Nicor Gas will restore landscaping and paving impacted by its construction to the condition in which it was found. Temporary restoration of some areas may be necessary until permanent restoration can be completed. To date, several areas have been completed and is scheduled for restoration in the upcoming weeks.

Please note frequent locates of water, sewer, electric and cable utilities will be identified with spray painted markings and colored flags. It is important that these markings always remain visible for your safety. Private utility lines, such as sprinkler systems, are your responsibility to identify and mark at the time other utilities are marked.

All Nicor Gas employees and contractors will have Nicor Gas or AGL Resources-issued ID cards and will present them if requested.
