Fast-paced tri-town gas plan takes shape

Cumberland, Falmouth and Yarmouth officials continued to craft the outline for a plan that would bring natural gas service to 90% of commercial customers within three years and 80% of residential customers within four years.

The Portland Press Herald reported officials from the three towns and Summit Natural Gas of Maine met Tuesday to firm up details of the proposal for expanding natural gas service in the area that they will submit to state regulators for approval.

The plan outlines a rapid build-out of natural gas service that Cumberland Town Manager William Shane said would have crews laying at least 1,000 feet of pipe per day, for a total of 1.2 million feet of pipe by the completion of the project.
