Our Distribution System

Here at Columbia Gas of Virginia, we operate more than 4,800 miles of gas mains with approximately 250,000 gas services. Our underground infrastructure consists of steel, cast iron and plastic. We are excited to break ground in 2012 on some of the most important construction projects in our company history. We are investing $100 million over the next five years as part of our natural gas infrastructure upgrade plan.
