Aug. 12, 2015 –
Utilities Kingston and Kingston Fire & Rescue are advising residents that a planned release of natural gas is scheduled to take place at Lower University Avenue and Stuart Street on Thursday, Aug. 13.
While the public may notice a venting flame and/or a gas odour in the air for about an hour during the mid-morning operation, there is no need for the public to be alarmed.
