We have completed construction and restoration of the Wheaton Natural Gas Project. We will continue to monitor restored work areas during the coming months.

If was our pleasure to work in your community, and we thank you for your patience and cooperation.

We installed two miles of natural gas line and a regulator station which regulates natural gas pressure in the Town of Wheaton and City of Eau Claire. The natural gas line was installed in County Road F, north of 30th Avenue in the Town of Wheaton (Chippewa County) to south of County Line Road in the City of Eau Claire (Eau Claire County).

This project allows us to provide safe, reliable service, accommodates and supports area growth and enhances system resiliency to extreme weather.

Construction of the Wheaton Natural Gas Project began in May 2022 and was completed in November 2022.
