Gas System Description

Today the same high pressure main exists as was installed in 1963 and the distribution system has grown to encompass an area of approximately 2-½ mile radius around Marshall. Several distribution systems have been installed along IL Route 40 between town and the state line metering station, such as in the Dunlap area, Weaver Road area and the Livingston area.

Gas Department Duties

The gas department has two full time employees. These employees operate and maintain the distribution system along with the metering stations. Some of their duties include the installation and maintenance of new services and mains, meter maintenance, leak and cathodic protection surveys and responding to odor complaints.
