State Investigates National Grid Natural Gas Issue

posted by John Baibak - 

The Massachusetts Department of Public  Utilities is ordering National Grid crews to halt work in Woburn.  

That  means hundreds of area properties had their gas shut off.  

The safety  practice was put in place after excess gas was introduced into the  system shortly before noon yesterday, causing a potential pressurization  issue. 

National Grid technicians will be going door-to-door to turn  off meters and make assessments before gas is turned back on.  Gas  re-lights began late yesterday evening, and will continue this morning.
