PSE&G is accelerating the modernization of its aging gas pipes in order to ensure the utility can continue to support a safe, clean and reliable gas system well into the future.
Under a $905 million program, PSE&G will replace 510 miles of cast iron and unprotected steel mains and 38,000 service lines over three-years. The mains and services will be replaced with strong, durable plastic piping and/or coated steel, which are much less likely to have leaks and release methane gas. The new elevated pressure systems also enable the installation of excess flow valves that dramatically reduce gas flow if a service line is damaged, and provide better support for the use of high-efficiency appliances.
