Fix Our Pipes

How can your town or city coordinate with utilities to reduce gas leaks?

HEET partnered with Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to survey cities and towns in Massachusetts to find out how municipalities and gas companies can work together more effectively.

The report’s website,, is so pretty, it makes your teeth ache. You can cruise through it like you read The New Yorker, scanning the comics until you find something that grabs your attention from lists of best practices for saving money and getting leaks fixed more efficiently.

It’s a treasure trove of ideas to get to win-win-win for public works, gas companies, and our communities.

Please share the report with any DPW or city councilors you know so they can fix gas leaks and save money.

“Winter is the best time for cities and towns to meet with the gas company and plan for a well-coordinated construction season!”
—Patrick Roche, Energy Coordinator, MAPC
