Happy Natural Gas Utility Workers Day!

Wahoo Utilities Natural Gas Workers

The City of Wahoo Celebrates Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day today!

This is the eighth year in which Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day has been officially celebrated across the country. This day of recognition is a time when communities such as ours give recognition to the employees who provide one of their most valuable assets—their natural gas utility.

The official Natural Gas Utility Workers’ Day is March 18 because that is the date of the New London, Texas school explosion in 1937 that led to the widespread odorization of natural gas and an increased emphasis on safety. Safety is a vital aspect to natural gas distribution and the employees of distribution companies endeavor to make natural gas delivery as safe as possible. This annual nationwide event is intended to build public awareness about the hard work done by the employees of natural gas utilities.

The City of Wahoo Utilities has owned and operated the Natural Gas System in Wahoo since 1999. It was the vote of the citizens of Wahoo to have the Gas System locally owned and operated with the local control at the heart of the decision.

The number one reason this has been successful is due to the dedicated professionals that operate our gas system. With over 60 year of combined operational experience Chris Otte, Jeff Peterson, and Wayne Stang bring a passion and expertise that keep our Natural Gas Service Safe, Reliable and Affordable. We thank them for their service! In addition, all of our administrative staff at City Hall do a great job of communicating and educating about Natural Gas and answering customers questions.

Wahoo Utilities looks forward to continuing to bring safe, reliable and affordable natural gas into your homes and businesses.  We also hope you join us in supporting natural gas as a premier energy source for our country.  As the cleanest burning fossil fuel, natural gas can help us achieve energy security and build a more competitive economy.
