Dakota Natural Gas Expansion Project Making Progress in Traill County
Hillsboro, ND — Crews from Dakota Natural Gas have been hard at work installing natural gas infrastructure for the communities of Mayville and Hillsboro. According to their most recent update, Dakota Natural Gas is well ahead of schedule and employees hope to have the first 40 to 50 miles of pipe installed to the American Crystal Sugar plant before August and the first residential and commercial customers within Mayville and Hillsboro can expect to have gas available by end of September. Jim Murphy with the Traill County EDC says the option of natural gas in the community will be beneficial, especially to the largest of users like American Crystal and Mayville State.
Potential customers are able to save $100.00 by signing up for service before July 1st . Visit www.dakotanaturalgas.com for more information and to view the installation route.
Dakota Natural is also currently working on a feasibility study to expand their natural gas system west to Portland in 2022. Confident that they will move forward with that expansion, they have already began working on permits and regulatory authorizations for that potential project.
