To meet customers' current and future energy needs and address capacity constraints on the existing natural gas system, Puget Sound Energy upgraded the natural gas system in Chehalis. We installed approximately 4,600 feet of 8-inch natural gas line along Coal Creek Road between Myrtle View Lane and Symonds Road (see map). This project was a continuation of the initial segment of 8-inch natural gas line completed in fall 2007. In the first segment we replaced 1.2 miles of 4-inch natural gas line with 8-inch natural gas line along N. National Avenue and NE Coal Creek Road in Chehalis.

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.
