The Town of Wellesley has issued an art due to planned maintenance work by Algonquin Gas that involves releasing odorized natural gas at two locations in the area on Sunday, August 18 and on Saturday, August 31.
The release locations are at the valve site near 68 Walnut Street in Wellesley and Quinobequin Road in Newton, and at the Needham meter and regulator site on Mary Chilton Road, adjacent to the Wellesley RDF.
There will be a slight odor and noise associated with this work. Gas company personnel will be on site throughout the release process and maintenance work.
Residents in the release areas have been notified, as have Wellesley Fire and Police Departments. Town officials say they have no further details on this work.
For questions, please contact Algonquin Gas at 781-329-3750 during regular business hours. You may also call the Spectra Energy Gas Control 24-hour call line at 1-800-726-8383.
This intentional gas leak is separate from the unintentional ones that Susatainable Wellesley has been calling attention to in recent years.
