Upgrade of Natural Gas Lines

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