Phase 1 Upgrade of Natural Gas Lines
Florida Public Utilities has embarked upon upgrading & installing new pipes throughout the City. The replacement project will abandon the old steel mains & service lines & replace them with new polyethylene piping which is corrosion resistant & has a longer service life, thus minimizing breaks, gas leaks, and improving service to Lake Worth customers. Please be cautious during construction & understand there may be temporary limited access on roads & in the alleyways. Phase 1 Maps | Gas Reliability Infrastructure Program
