Join Mike LaMont and Stuart Saulters, VP of Government Relations for APGA as they discuss the recent Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act which includes a $1 billion grant program to support investments in natural gas distribution infrastructure exclusively open to municipal or community-owned gas systems. The Pipelines and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) will administer these funds for pipeline replacement, repair or rehabilitation projects, as well as other efforts that could reduce incidents and fatalities and avoid economic loss.
Topics will include an overview of the grant program and application as well as:
- Management of pipe replacement after the grant is awarded
- GIS and data management updates to reflect replaced pipe and the positive impact for communities
- Distribution Integrity Management Planning (DIMP)
- Identification of highest risk segments for focus of the grant
