System Upgrades Increase Safety & Reliability of Natural Gas Service


LAMAR, Colo. (May 30, 2018) –Atmos Energy is investing millions of dollars to replace aging infrastructure throughout Colorado to further increase the safety and reliability of its natural gas delivery system. Beginning Monday, June 4, 2018, these pipe replacement efforts will take place in Lamar, Colorado.

“Over the next several weeks, we will be upgrading natural gas pipelines located on the east side of Lamar, just south of the railroad including Parmenter Street and Stewart Place,” said Kurtis Paradisa, Atmos Energy Public Affairs Specialist. “While our current system is safe and has performed well, we are replacing aging pipe with state-of-the-art materials.”

Lamar is home to more than 3,000 customers served by Atmos Energy in Colorado. This summer, Residents can expect to see highly-trained work crews replacing the natural gas mains and service lines that connect to customers’ meters.

“We are working closely with Lamar city officials and our local fire department to minimize any disruption that may accompany these upgrades,” said Paradisa. “In an effort to keep our customers informed, Atmos Energy crews will place a door tag at your home before work begins and place construction signs throughout your neighborhood.”

Atmos Energy’s pipe replacement projects are scheduled to last 6-8 weeks, concluding in July, 2018. For more information, visit:, or call 1-888-286-6700.
