Natural Gas Restored in Milford

By  | 

Milford Police say natural gas has been restored after it was cut off due to a traffic accident.

Black Hills Energy Crews are still trying to reach 75 to 100 people to turn on their pilot light. At locations where no one is home or the business is closed, a tag will was left on the door notifying the customer to call the company for it to be turned back on. Customers with question about restoring service should contact Black Hills Energy at 1-888-890-5554.

Chief of Police Forrest Siebken says a pickup driven by a 19-year-old man collided with a Black Hills Energy district regulator station located at 1st Street and Elm Ave. on Tuesday. The driver was not injured in the crash.

The outage lasted 5 to 6 hours while Black Hills Energy crews fixed the regulator.

Around 800 meters had to be disconnected, and all homes and businesses were without natural gas.
