The 25-year project was launched in 1991 and was intentionally spaced over a quarter century to address the aging system, while ensuring limited service interruptions to customers. Understanding that in 1991 the outdated lines comprised approximately 25 percent of the total system, Roanoke Gas prioritized its replacement program using a risk-based evaluation that included leak history, population density and other factors.With the major modernization project completed, Roanoke Gas Company will now focus its system renewal efforts on the replacement of pre-1973 plastic mains with polyethylene pipe.
