Kansas Gas Service is currently replacing natural gas meters throughout the city of Newton.

Customers affected by the project will be notified by NPL Construction Company, the contractor assisting Kansas Gas Service, by notice left at their home or business.

A standard meter replacement requires interruption of a customer's natural gas service for approximately 20 minutes and access inside homes or businesses to properly relight appliances.

The contractors performing the work will carry photo identification badges that identify them as working on behalf of Kansas Gas Service. The project is expected to be completed in two to three weeks.
