Following a March gas line leak that shut down Clairmont Road, Atlanta Gas Light spokeman Matt Sawhill said, "These incidents are not uncommon when installing underground infrastructure. Due to the heightened sensitivity of the regulator station location, the foreman and superintendent [were asked] to exercise extreme caution throughout the remainder of this process."
The recent gas leaks in the area over the last four to five months have alarmed residents who oppose the Atlanta Gas Light regulator station being built in the Peachtree-DeKalb Airport flight path.
In a story first reported here on Patch, AGL is replacing portions of its so-called Eastside Pipeline. It is also building a gas regulator pipeline station directly in DeKalb-Peachtree Airport's flight path, which has some residents worried about potential public safety issues.
