Xcel in area inspecting

Beginning this week and continuing through late November Xcel Energy crews on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) will be inspecting the natural gas distribution system in the area. The communities affected include the city of Hudson, village of North Hudson and town of Troy. The use of ATVs enables crews to access road rights-of-way and utility easements as they perform the annual gas main inspection. The data collected will help Xcel Energy ensure that its natural gas system is safe and reliable for its customers. For more information, call Xcel at 1-800-895-4999.
