Public Notice: EXCESS FLOW VALVES

Posted on: March 20th, 2017 at 2:55 pm

Excess Flow Valves (EFVs) are mechanical shut-off devices that can be installed in the natural gas pipe running to the gas meter at your property (the “service line”).  An EFV is designed to shut off most of the flow of natural gas automatically if the service line breaks, for example, by an excavation accident. Stopping the flow of gas from a broken service line significantly reduces the risk of natural gas fire, explosion, personal injury and/or property damage.

You may request that we install an excess flow valve on the service line to your property.

If you notify us that you want an EFV, we will contact you to discuss your specific situation of installation and maintenance.  EFVs cannot be installed on some service lines due to high gas flow, low pressure or other factors. If you request an EFV, we will inform you if your service line cannot accommodate an EFV.

If an EFV can be installed on your service line and you choose to have this done, we will set up a mutually agreeable date when we will install an EFV on your service line.

You will need to request and pay $2,000 to cover the cost of installing the EFV.

To submit a request or if you have questions, please call the

City of Lawrenceville Gas Department at 770.963.3332.

The City of Lawrenceville held a groundbreaking ceremony today to celebrate the future site of its Public Works operations that included a traditional shovel ceremony commemorating the start of construction for the new facility that will soon be home to 112 city employees. The total investment of the project is estimated to be around $20 million.

The departments that will be housed there are the backbone of Lawrenceville and what they contribute to the city every day is absolutely invaluable”, said Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson.

Croft and Associates, the architectural and engineering firm managing the project, will begin prep of the site this month. Construction will be completed by Reeves Young, with architectural design competed by Precision Planning and an intersection being added to Pike Street by E.R. Snell Contractor, Inc.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Lawrenceville Events Win Regional Awards, Bring Home the Gold and Bronze

Local Community Events Win 2017 Kaleidoscope Awards from the Southeast Festivals and Events Association

 

LAWRENCEVILLE (METRO ATLANTA) GA – February 24, 2017

The City of Lawrenceville received accolades for two of its annual community events, Hometown Christmas Parade and Rock’n Ribville, as among the best in the Southeast. The Hometown Christmas Parade took home the Gold for Best Photo (photo taken by Brad Fryman) and Bronze for Best New Event and Rock’n Ribville received the Bronze Award for Best Event (under $75,000 budget). The awards ceremony was held in conjunction with the 14th Annual SFEA Conference that includes festival and event organizers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

“The quality of submissions continues to increase each year making it more difficult for the judges to select the winners,” noted Brenda Pierce, executive director for SFEA.  “Of course, to ‘win gold,’ becomes all the sweeter when there is additional competition and the recognition a festival receives for winning is priceless.”

The Kaleidoscope Award winners are chosen by a panel of experts in event planning, marketing and tourism. The judges scored each entry based on originality, creativity, media impact, volunteer programs, and the overall impact to the community.

Lawrenceville City Manager, Chuck Warbington added, “Events hosted by the City are some of the greatest contributors to building a community that maintains a strong sense of place, in turn, creating a more vibrant and attractive community. We are so proud of every team member that helps make these events possible and appreciate the hard work they put in day after day.”
