Baltimore Gas and Electric crews will be replacing natural gas lines in Arbutus, as part of an ongoing project.
Called Operation Pipeline, it's BGE's ongoing efforts to replace aged cast-iron and steel pipes. Catonsville is entering the second of its three-phase gas pipe overhaul, according to BGE's website.

“Through Operation Pipeline, BGE is making an investment to upgrade gas equipment that is approaching the end of useful service,” Jeannette M. Mills, vice president and chief customer officer for BGE, said in a press release. “This program is part of BGE’s continuing commitment to providing safe and reliable energy systems, and by taking this proactive approach, customers benefit from a more efficient and cost-effective way to maintain infrastructure.”
Since the program started in 2010, crews have replaced nearly 40 miles of pipeline throughout the utility's service area, according to the release.
