As of Monday, a trunk line to bring natural gas from Anchor Point to Homer is progressing with a crew from Chumley boring and laying pipe along the Sterling Highway from Baycrest to Homer.
A second crew will start working later this week, progressing toward Anchor Point along the Old Sterling Highway, beginning near the intersection with the Sterling Highway.
A third crew is scheduled to begin work near the end of May on the Fairview Avenue section of the trunk line route.
Clark Management crews continue brushing work in Kachemak City and are preparing to install the distribution system main lines and service lines in June.
Utility Technologies Inc. will focus its initial distribution system installation along the Sterling Highway within the city of Homer. They will be installing four-inch diameter distribution main lines from West Hill Road into Homer, toward Lake Street, and then across the Beluga Lake outlet continuing on towards the airport.
That activity will start in May.
“Enstar would like to thank everyone who came out on Friday to see us at our grilling fair,” said John Sims, Enstar’s manager of corporate communications and customer service. “The weather was great and we enjoyed meeting everyone. We would also like to thank the folks at the Kachemak City Community Council Center for allowing us to use their facility.”
