Waste in the Fifth District
Long Beach Gas and Oil to Replace Gas Facilities in the 5th

Dear Reader,


Long Beach Gas and Oil Department will be starting work installing a section of new gas main in E. Centralia Street between Faculty Ave. and Graywood Ave. on or around March 27, 2012.


The work is part of our ongoing maintenance and replacement program designed to ensure that the gas distribution facilities will continue to operate as a reliable, efficient and safe system.


Due to the nature of the work, portions of the traffic and parking areas will be restricted to vehicles from 7:30am until 4pm. No parking signs will be posted in the designated areas.


If you have any questions, please contact my office at (562) 570-6932 or
