Henderson facing disruption of gas, water and sewer
HENDERSON – When the Louisiana Highway 352, Henderson Highway, project gets underway around the end of the month, residents here will start seeing periodic disruption in water, sewer and possibly some natural gas service.
Ray Robin, manager of the Henderson-Nina Water System, said two of their sewer lines and one water or two lines will have to be repositioned to meet the state standard of at least four feet or deeper beneath storm drains that run under the highway.
There are seven storm drains that have to be replaced as contract crews rebuild the highway, Robin said.
Terry Thibodeaux, operations supervisor for Atmos Energy, said the company can reroute gas supplies to Henderson without disrupting service when the main line is affected by the construction.
However, he said, individuals might temporarily lose service if the construction impacts the lines going from the main line to the customer.
Thibodeaux said each customer affected will be given advance warning and a crew will be available around the clock to reconnect the service as soon as the work is done.
Robin said the contractor that laid the sewer lines for the city will be called back in to make good on any lines that weren’t done to state specs.
