Notification of Anticipated Sound Impacts and Scheduled Natural Gas Venting - Compressor Station

On Thursday, September 15, 2022, The Town of Weymouth received a Notification of Anticipated Sound Impacts and Scheduled Natural Gas Venting from Algonquin.

Algonquin will operate the emergency generator to meet routine readiness testing and standard maintenance requirements on September 19th and will be conducting planned maintenance at the Weymouth Compressor Station from September 20 through September 30, 2022. For the duration of the activities associated with this work, there may be intermittent off-site sound impacts.

The maintenance activities will require controlled natural gas venting to depressurize station piping and equipment intermittently between September 22 and September 30, 2022. Between September 28 and September 30, 2022, following completion of maintenance activities, the facility will be purged of air and be brought up to pressure with natural gas.

Additionally, from September 20 through September 23, 2022, Algonquin is planning to operate a vacuum truck. The work is scheduled to be completed during the daytime, but no later than early evening, and efforts will be made to reduce sound impacts to the extent possible.

Algonquin will notify the Town of any changes to the above schedule.
