Atmos Energy crews and contractors will bor working on gas lines at South Spikes Road and South 15th Street Tuesday and Wednesday.
The crews will oversee a controlled natural gas flaring on Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, beginning at approximately 8 a.m. The company will be testing the integrity of the gas pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine maintenance operations.
“Flaring” is a standard industry practice to safely burn natural gas that must be removed from a specific section of pipeline so that employees can work on the pipe. People in the area will notice a large, controlled flame and moderate noise for approximately three to four hours.
The Corsicana Fire and Police Departments, city officials, the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office, and 9-1-1 operators have been advised of the planned flaring.
