March 18 has been designated by the American Public Gas Association (APGA) as national Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day. In 2015, the APGA began searching for a way to nationally recognize natural gas utility workers for their hard work and accomplishments. 

On March 18, the City of Lawrenceville and municipalities across the United States honor natural gas utility workers each year. March 18 is also the date of the 1937 New London, Texas school explosion that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety. Safety is a vital aspect to natural gas distribution and the employees of distribution companies endeavor to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible. The Lawrenceville Natural Gas Department has been individually awarded for safety performance by the APGA five consecutive years.

The City of Lawrenceville Natural Gas Department was established in the 1950’s and currently serves approximately 50,000 customers in four counties:  Gwinnett, Newton, Rockdale, and Walton.  It is the 2nd largest municipally owned gas department in the State of Georgia.  There are 43 employees in the division, led by Todd Hardigree, Department Director. Since 2015, the City of Lawrenceville Natural Gas Department has completed a $22M upgrades for gas infrastructure.  For an informative video, click here.
