Clarksville Gas and Water Department observes Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day

Clarksville Gas and Water Department - CGWClarksville, TN – The Clarksville Gas and Water Department (CGW) will observe the national Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day on Friday, March 18th, 2022. 

The national day of recognition was officially established in 2015 by the American Public Gas Association (APGA) and is celebrated across the country. It is a time when communities such as ours celebrate the employees who provide one of their most valuable assets—their natural gas utility. 

March 18th was chosen because it’s the date of the New London, Texas school explosion in 1937 that led to an increased emphasis on safety and the widespread odorization of natural gas so it can be detected. Safety is a vital aspect to natural gas distribution, and the employees of the Clarksville gas system place a high priority on providing safe and reliable natural gas service to its customers.

This day is also intended to build public awareness about the hard work done by the employees of natural gas utilities. Customers recognize the need to access reliable, affordable, safe energy and depend on the service of natural gas utility employees for that need. 

“Our Clarksville gas utility workers demonstrate their commitment to providing our community with a safe, reliable, and affordable energy source through hard work and dedication,” said Troy Jones, Clarksville Gas Department Manager. “I am very proud of their daily efforts to provide affordable natural gas to our community, and I honor them for being the very best in their field.”

The Clarksville Gas and Water Department is the local natural gas supplier for the City of Clarksville and communities in five area counties serving over 28,000 customers and maintaining 937 miles of gas distribution line.
