Project Overview

Xcel Energy continues to replace 600 linear miles of natural gas pipeline throughout Colorado. Nearly 100 linear miles are in the Denver metro area, with the remainder being throughout the state. This work will result in continued reliable gas service for current and new customers.

Approximately one week before work starts, residents and businesses will receive a door-hanger describing what to expect during construction and a letter from the project manager that includes a 24/7 contact phone number for that project.

Each contractor also has a representative available 24 hours a day, seven days a week:
• KR Swerdfeger Construction – 719-252-8838
• KS Energy Services – 303-912-9800
• Q3 Contracting – 303-996-3544
• Sitewise Corporation – 720-587-7359
• Sturgeon Electric Company – 303-906-0568

Xcel Energy also is available at all times to discuss any concerns or to answer any questions at 1-800-895-4999.

Replacement Process

As we replace the natural gas pipeline, residents can expect:

  • Underground utility identification before construction starts. Utility owners, like Xcel Energy, locate underground utilities to avoid damaging them before they start digging. Natural gas pipelines are marked with yellow “Buried Gas Line” flags and yellow spray paint on streets and sidewalks. Other colored flags and/or paint represent the following utilities: red for electric; blue for water; orange for communication; and green for sewer.
  •  The digging of trenches and holes in streets and/or sidewalks so new polyethylene or steel pipe can replace the current pipe. These trenches and holes will be plated or covered over and all construction equipment will be stored behind barricades every night.
  • The relocation of gas meters and shut-off valves currently inside homes to locations outside the home at no cost to our customers. We need to do this to be in compliance with Department of Transportation (DOT) Gas Standards. If your gas meter needs to be moved, an Xcel Energy employee or contractor will contact you to set up an appointment. All Xcel Energy employees and contractors carry company ID cards, and we encourage you to ask them for identification before granting permission to enter your home.
  •  Temporary street and sidewalk repairs until the pipe is tested. Once the new pipe is installed and the entire system is connected, it needs to be tested according to required DOT Gas Standards. After testing and pressurization, gas service will be transferred from the old pipeline to the new pipe.
  • Final restoration once the new pipeline is in service. All streets, sidewalks, and landscaping will be restored to its original, preconstruction condition once the new pipeline is in service.
