Dominion East Ohio Seeks Approval To Double Pipeline Replacement Spending

Posted on

As part of its ongoing efforts to maintain the safety and reliability of its pipeline system, Dominion East Ohio sought Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) approval to accelerate its previously approved Pipeline Infrastructure Replacement (PIR) program.
  If approved, Dominion East Ohio would nearly double its PIR spending to more than $200 million annually. When the program began in 2008 as a $2.7 billion, 25-year program, the company originally identified over 4,000 miles of older pipelines for replacement.
