Central Hudson continues to replace select 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 as part of an initiative to address aging infrastructure.

Many of the pipelines being replaced were installed prior to 1950. While these types of lines are regularly addressed as a part of Central Hudson's annual maintenance program, these replacements are now accelerated as approved and required by state regulators. 

This year, Central Hudson plans to replace more than 15 miles of pipeline with new polyethylene mains and services, which is extremely durable and less susceptible to environmental conditions. Similar plans to replace gas mains are anticipated to continue across the region through 2021 and potentially later.

The graphic below explains this process, in general, while the column to the right provides links to town- and timeline-specific information.
