Natural gas conservation request for northwest Wisconsin lifted

We are lifting our natural gas conservation request for customers in northwest Wisconsin.

TransCanada continues to make repairs to its pipeline that was damaged because of an explosion early Saturday. Two other pipelines were shut down until inspections could be completed. One went into service last night. The other is expected to return to service in a day or two.

We are receiving the amount of natural gas we need for our customers via Viking Gas Transmission, which transports natural gas to our system in northwest Wisconsin. Though extreme cold tonight and tomorrow will continue to challenge the system, we expect to be able to meet demand. We appreciate the conservation measures taken by our customers since the incident occurred.

A small number of commercial and industrial customers on interruptible-service rates remain without service until further notice.
