Tomorrow, Friday, November 16, New Jersey Natural Gas will be working on our service restoration plan for Long Beach Island in the section of the island from Holly Drive to the northerntip of LBI.

Please note that police will have this section of the island blocked off to pedestrian and
vehicle traffic on Friday, so that we may safely complete this complex operation.
Our work will take place in three phases: first, a team will re-introduce natural gas into the main, one section of the island at a time. This is the work that is being conducted on Friday.

As your section of the island is completed, a second team will begin to repair and replace the
meter sets within your section. When this work is completed, a home or business will have
natural gas up to its meter. At this point, if a home or business has electricity and is habitable
and occupied, then you may have your own qualified technician determine that your natural
gas system and equipment are safe for use, and turn on your natural gas service.
We estimate that this meter work should tentatively be completed by Tuesday,
November 20, but you should check back on this site for updates.

We are advising customers as follows:
• As a property owner, you are responsible for maintaining all gas lines on
your side of the meter.
• You need to have a qualified technician inspect all your gas lines for
proper operation and leaks.
• Any furnaces, boilers or other appliances exposed to flooding or other
storm-related damage must be serviced and determined to be safe for
use by qualified technicians.
• Once a qualified technician has determined that your gas system and
equipment are safe for use, the technician should connect your gas line
to the gas valve.
• Once the qualified technician establishes the piping connection and
determines that it is safe for use, the gas valve can be turned to the on position.
• There will be a tag on the valve, which must be signed and dated by both
the resident and the technician, and then returned to the municipal code official.
