System Upgrades Increase Safety & Reliability of Natural Gas Service


LAMAR, Colo. (May 9, 2019) –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, May 13th, 2019, these pipe replacement efforts will take place in Lamar, Colorado.

“Over the next several weeks, we will be upgrading natural gas pipelines in Lamar. This year our North Lamar project will include, West Beech Street south to Canal Street and 14th Street east to Main Street,” said Kurtis Paradisa, Atmos Energy Public Affairs Manager. “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 spring and into the fall, 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 28-30 weeks, concluding in November, 2019. For more information and to view a map of the projects, visit:, or call 1-888-286-6700.

Natural Gas Safety and You

One of the best ways to detect a natural gas leak is through your sense of smell. We add an odorant to our gas that makes it smell like rotten-eggs. We do this as a safety precaution. If you ever smell gas – leave your home immediately and from a safe distance call 911 and our emergency number 1-866-322-8667.
