Nicor Gas Release, Wednesday July 26th 


Elmhurst, IL – Nicor Gas is in the process of modernizing the system that delivers natural gas safely and reliably to its customers.  The project requires the replacement of a 20” natural gas main on Madison Street between Hawthorne Avenue and Kearsage Avenue.

On Wednesday, July 26th between 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., the project will require expelling a natural gas release (masked with an orange scent) in two locations, Madison and Kent and Madison and Hawthorn. This natural gas release will create a loud noise that will be heard in the surrounding area. Residents should not be concerned with this process, as it is safe, highly controlled, and necessary for the replacement of the gas main.
