FPUA Reports an Isolated Natural Gas Leak in Fort Pierce
Fort Pierce - Wednesday September 28, 2022: FPUA has identified an isolated natural gas leak at 13th Street and Georgia Avenue in Fort Pierce that is currently not affecting any customers. The issue was quickly identified, and work began immediately to remedy the situation.
FPUA has deployed all available natural gas crews to expedite the restoration process. Crews will work as quickly and safely as possible, as the weather conditions permit. Immediately following the storm, once winds drop below 35 miles per hour, FPUA’s field crews will continue restoration efforts.
As crews work to fully resolve the issue, some impacted customers may have their natural gas temporarily shut off before an FPUA service person comes to relight the natural gas service. This is done for the safety of our customers, communities, and employees, but we understand that this is an inconvenience and appreciate the patience of our customers.
Full restoration could take 2 to 3 days. As more information is available and the restoration process progresses, we will provide additional updates.
