Cold Weather Affects Gas Pressure for Chesapeake Utilities

Posted:

FRUITLAND, Md.- The extreme winter weather affected the gas pressure in some Chesapeake Utilities lines Tuesday.

That meant reduced or no gas service for some customers in Salisbury, Fruitland and Cambridge.

Youth Exercise Services in Fruitland lost their heat for part of the afternoon.

"It was like an ice box in here, it was really really cold," Elspeth Schalk said.

For gym owner Fred Vanderveen, his gym wouldn't heat up. "The furnaces would work but they weren't working up to speed, it just got cold," he said.

Chesapeake Utilities crews were working on Camden Avenue in Fruitland to full restore the pressure and luckily for Vanderveen, the outage was over pretty quickly.

"Within about a half an hour to an hour the heat started to come back up," but Vanderveen still decided to close the gym early Tuesday night.

"It was 42 degrees, it was cold," he said. "And I really don't like to have kids running around when it's that cold. I can usually warm them up but when they stop and there's steam rolling off of them, their parents get a little upset."

If customers are still having problems, Chesapeake Utilities is asking customers to call their customer service department at 410-548-5515.
