Natural Gas Public Awareness Message
The National Transportation Safety Board states that pipelines provide the highest level of public safety as compared to others transportation modes. Everyday natural gas pipelines safely carry one of the world's reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly fuels to businesses, homes and neighborhoods like yours. Preventing pipeline emergencies is important to Waynesboro gas. We are part of this community and we're committed to delivering natural gas safely to our neighbors.
As good neighbors do, you can help, here's how.
Through Natural goes pipeline incidents are rare, you should know these signs.
Look. Blowing dirt, bubbling water, dry spots in moist areas or dead plants surrounded by green plants may indicate a natural gas leak.
Listen. If you hear a hissing sound near a natural gas appliance or pipe it may be natural gas leaking.
Smell. Be aware of the distinctive, rotten egg - like smell of natural gas. You should take action anytime you detect even a small amount of this odor.
Don't break the law - call before you dig
Did you know that excavation work, including digging in the yard and plowing is the most common cause of natural gas pipeline damage. Before beginning excavation of any kind, state law requires that you call TENNESSEE ONE CALL at 811 so all utility lines can be clearly marked by professionals prior to any digging. This is a free call so don't break the law.
If you suspect a leak take these actions:
1. Leave. If you ever detect a natural gas leak LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. Don't try to find or stop the leak.
2. Do Not Touch Anything Electrical before you leave or use a telephone - even a cell phone. Do not smoke, turn appliances on or off or operate any vehicle or equipment that could create a spark.

Waynesboro Waste Water Treatment Facility
Patrick Burns- Waste Water Department Director
The new, upcoming waste water treatment plant is a Sequencing Batch reactor (SBR) designed to treat 700,000 GPD (gallons per day) with a maximum flow rate of 1,200,000 GPD. The two 48'x 48'x 24' treatment tanks will treat the raw waste water in cycles. The new tanks will be able to contain twice as much waste water as the present facility.
The present waste water treatment facility was constructed in 1972 and designed to treat up to 506,000 gallons per day of raw waste water. In the last few years, it has had days exceeding that amount and has averaged treating 340,000 gallons per day (GDP). Its holding its own but was not designed to function under the present conditions. The new facility is scheduled for completion Summer 2014.
