The purpose of this project is to relocate existing inside gas meters to the exterior of buildings for reading purposes and as a safety upgrade to ATCO Gas’ system. All work is within Edmonton. Somerville is responsible for everything from contacting customers and making appointments, applying for and tracking locates/permits, completing all below ground work and completing all associated downstream piping. The below ground work involves digging either by hand or with a mini-excavator and using trench-less technology  (i.e. torpedo or hole hog) to run the line under ground with minimal disturbance to the customers yard. The gas line downstream of the meter is also piped to complete the moving of the gas meter. The yards are then repaired back to the same or better condition, which includes such things as laying sod, pouring and finishing concrete or completing asphalt repairs. Contract is to complete 1,600 moves.
