Some residents who live in rural Clark County will soon lose their source of natural gas as Jefferson Gas, LLC abandons a pipeline said to be over 100 years old.
A letter from the company sent to 79 customers about the decision noted the KZ pipeline would be shut off June 24.
Those customers will most likely have to switch to propane, according to Gene Mapes, president of Jefferson Gas.
Aside from age, the letter said the decision is due to the pipeline costing the company over $10,000 a month in operation costs
However, Jefferson Gas said it will repay expenses to customers up to $500 as they switch energy providers, as long as customers mail their paid receipts at their current address and have their bills paid in full by June 24.
