Notice from Algonquin Gas Transmission

Release Date: April 07, 2022

April 6, 2022


Dear Landowner; 

 This notice is to inform you that Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC (“AGT”) is continuing its construction activities of its Hudson River Aux Project, in which work is being done in accordance with all applicable governmental approvals.  

In order to complete this work, we must conduct controlled releases of natural gas by opening various valves to purge the air out of the pipeline.  You are receiving this notice because your residence is in proximity to one of these locations.  
This activity is scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 7, 2022, and Friday, April 8, 2022. 

As natural gas is released into the air, there will be a loud, rushing noise that may last several hours.  The noise may be accompanied by an odor resulting from the odorant mercaptan, which is injected into the natural gas to make it recognizable for safety reasons.    

Natural Gas is naturally odorless and is lighter than air.  It will quickly rise and dissipate into the atmosphere.  The odorant may linger for a few days as minute traces will separate from the natural gas that is released.  

During the release, should you hear the noise or smell the odorant in natural gas, please know that there is no cause for alarm and there will be no danger whatsoever to persons or property in the area.  

AGT representatives will be at these various valve sites to closely manage and monitor the controlled releases.  Personnel and equipment will remain at the various valve sites until this activity is complete.  Equipment will include portable air compressors, light stands and monitors that constantly measure the levels of natural gas.      

Please be advised that your local police and fire departments have been or will be notified of this activity.  If you have any questions concerning this procedure please contact me at (219) 629-5844.

Very truly yours,

Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC
