ATTENTION: CITY OF WALKER GAS CUSTOMERS

 

The City of Walker acknowledges our current gas supply problem within our gas distribution system.  The City of Walker sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience this situation has created for our valued customers.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this abnormally cold weather we have been experiencing lately.  When you combine the extremely cold weather with the wintery rain/sleet/snow mix we received yesterday, January 16, 2018 it makes a bad situation worse because Gas Department Employees have a difficult and potentially hazardous time responding to system needs with icy roadways. Customers should expect the icy road conditions will extend response times throughout our large gas distribution system.  The City of Walker has Gas Department personnel on duty around the clock to serve our customer’s needs.  Please call the following number for all Gas Department concerns:  (225) 337-1176.

   

Garbage pick up will be on Friday, January 18 this week.

GAS SUPPLY

The temporary gas supply trailers are in place in the Buddy Ellis Road area of our gas distribution system. These mobile gas supply trailers were installed to help our system keep up with heavy demand during periods of low temperatures. Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
