PUCO seeks public comments

COLUMBUS, OHIO (August 14, 2019) – The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) on Tuesday issued draft rules for public comment regarding gas pipeline safety. Comments are due Sept. 13, 2019.

As part of its regular five-year review, the Commission issued proposed rules for public comment. Among other things, PUCO staff-proposed rules:

  • Adopt the 2019 federal gas pipeline safety standards
  • Require gas pipeline operators to have a plan for abandoning inactive service lines
  • Create detailed reporting requirements for gathering line owners
