Natural gas measures lifted in Bainbridge, Roachdale

Friday, February 19, 2021

Utility customers in Bainbridge and Roachdale are now not required to conserve natural gas due to a shortage brought on by the recent winter weather events.

Roachdale Clerk-Treasurer Debbie Sillery notified the Banner Graphic Friday evening that customers there were able to return to normal operation.

The Town of Bainbridge also updated its prior notice Friday that customers could set thermostats to normal settings.

Both towns purchase natural gas from Utility Gas Management, which issued a supply alert after the winter storm knocked out Texas' power grid and demand was unable to be met.

  • Too bad the school system had to give up 2 days of instruction for this mess...the students never catch a break.

  • Every other school in the county was closed all week for weather.

  • To clarify: NP schools did not lose two days of instruction due to the natural gas situation. Students had eLearning lessons on Thursday and will make up Friday in-person on Apr. 2, which is a day built into the school calendar for just such an event.
