Puget Sound Energy natural gas pipeline project

Winter 2010-11 project completion 
  • We completed construction of the new natural gas line on Jan. 17, 2011
Project overview

To ensure continued reliability for our customers in the Chehalis area, PSE replaced approximately 4,000 feet of 4-inch natural gas pipeline (originally installed in 1956) with 8-inch natural gas pipeline in downtown Chehalis. The pipeline runs along Northwest State Avenue between Northwest Prindle and Northwest Sitka streets.

Test your natural gas knowledge by taking this short survey

How does natural gas get to my home or business?

Natural gas is a fossil fuel composed almost entirely of methane. Interstate pipelines transport natural gas to regional utility natural gas systems, where it is metered and delivered through a network of local mains, service lines and, ultimately, to customer homes and businesses. More than one-third of all Washington state households and businesses use natural gas.
