MEDIA RELEASE



Update on Southern Highlands gas supply

interruption


For immediate release:



Jemena is expecting that gas supply to 9,000 customers in the greater Bowral and greater

Mirttagong areas will be restored by Sunday afternoon.


Relights of the 5,000 homes and businesses in the greater Bowral area will start on Friday

afternoon and run though until Saturday.


Relights for the 4,000 homes and business in the greater Mittagong area will start on

Saturday afternoon and run through until Sunday.


Because Jemena has to relight customers individually, it will take up to three days before all

affected customers are back on supply.  


Jemena is liaising with NSW Ambulance, hospitals and aged care facilities to ensure that,

where possible, priority is given to those customers most at risk.  Jemena will advise those

customers when supply is safely restored.   Jemena continues to work closely with Industry

and Investment NSW and the SES to help ensure safe supply is available to customers as

soon as possible.


If you have health concerns or require emergency assistance, please contact the relevant

emergency service.


Jemena thanks all affected customers for their patience who can be assured that Jemena is

doing everything possible to restore their gas supply as soon as possible.


For further information, customers are asked to contact 13 19 09.


A further update will be issued at 4pm today.
