Starting at about 8 a.m. Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 17-18), Atmos Energy crews and
contractors may conduct controlled natural gas flaring at intersections in Greeley
as part of routine maintenance to pipelines in the area. Intersections include 11th
Avenue and 20th Street near Bishop-Lehr Hall. If the flaring is necessary, you may notice
a large, controlled flame and moderate noise in the area for about three to four hours.
Greeley fire department, sheriff department, police department, city officials, and
911 operators have been advised of the flaring. An industry-standard practice, flaring
safely burns natural gas that must be removed from a pipeline before it can be worked
on. For more information, go to https://atmosenergy.kzoplatform.com/swf/player/92.
