BERLIN, CONN., July 19, 2005—From July through October, Yankee Gas will be conducting required inspections of all gas services and meters in New London, Conn. This work is routine and is important to ensuring a safe, reliable natural gas distribution system.

Yankee Gas employees will be inspecting each home and business that has natural gas service, walking from the gas main in the street to the gas meter at the building. Inspections will be conducted with a Flame Ionization (FI) unit, a special electronic instrument with a probe attached.

Yankee Gas employees conducting these inspections will be wearing bright orange tee shirts or traffic vests. The company vehicle may not be with the employee in the neighborhood at all times, since this is a walking survey. All Yankee Gas employees carry photo identification, and anyone should feel free to ask to see it.
