Gas Company Continues Dismal Record of Lack of Transparency, Accountability, and Communication with Our Community about Gas Leaks and Repairs

Washington Gas Co. continuues its dismal record of failing to communicate with and be transparent and accountabile with our community about gas leaks and repairs beneath and above our streets.

The latest example:  work last week by the gas company on 28th Street, NW near Dumbarton Avenue.  Some the workers were apparently wearing protective gear including oxygen masks.  A fire extinguisher was at the ready on the sidewalk.

As in the past, there was no advance notice from the gas company to the community about what their crews were working on, any potential dangers to residents, follow-up about the nature or success of their repairs, next steps, etc.

How long will the commmunity continue to put up with the continued lack  of communication, accountability, and transparency by the Washington Gas Light Company?
