On the evening of Wednesday, November 14th, a gas emergency near the Farmington Country Club entrance caused widespread gas service interruption. On the morning of Thursday, November 15th, qualified technicians began going house-to-house to restore gas service to the 280 affected residences in Farmington, Ednam Forest, and Ednam. The process of restoring gas service requires access to the inside of each home , so that a technician can relight each appliance. If your gas service has not been restored yet, please call 434-970-3800 or 434-293-9164.
