Improving Safety & Reliability
Central Hudson is replacing certain natural gas mains (which run along roads and streets) and service lines (which connect to individual homes, apartment buildings and businesses) that are comprised of cast iron and steel in communities throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley to ensure the safety and reliability of the natural gas system.
The majority of these lines are located in cities, villages and areas gas service was first offered in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Many of these pipelines were installed in the 1930s or earlier.

Gas main replacements in 2019 are scheduled to take place in portions of the following communities:
