“Dear PoPville,

I’m here to report the Power of PoPville!

My meter relocation issue was posted on Monday and on Tuesday, I received a call from someone in the construction department of Washington Gas. Apparently several people had forwarded him the posting and he was calling to help answer my questions and resolve the issue.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m hoping the hive mind can help me with this crazy estimate to move my gas meter.

As part of a renovation, I need to move my Washington Gas meter from inside the basement to outside (just on the other side of the wall). Washington Gas contracts with third party vendors to do the work. In this case it’s Miller Pipeline. I was floored when I received this estimate today of over $6,000 dollars. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been on hold with Washington Gas for over two hours, and this is not the first time this month. I’ve sat on hours-long holds a few times and in previous call attempts I’ve had to hang up to go to work or class before anyone picks up. I’ve also emailed their customer service email address and have not gotten a response. Adding insult to injury, the hold robot started saying “your expected wait time is less than 5 minutes” at least an hour ago. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I had a question for the community about gas bills. We got our gas bill this month (for January) and it’s higher than anything I’ve ever received – $130.

We just moved into this house on the Hill last summer from a condo, and it’s about 150 years old, so I know it probably won’t keep heat as well as other new places, but just wanted to check to see if this is normal for a 1300sf house (2 stories). This seems high to me, though.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been trying to get in touch with Washington Gas for several days now but their phone system says they’re experiencing higher than normal call volume, keeps you on hold for an hour, and then eventually hangs up on you. Washington Gas tweeted on Nov 10th about the delays but there’s no proposed solution. (I’m not surprised by this, just frustrated.) Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I’m hoping to get some advice on a pretty awful issue I’m having with Washington Gas. My service was disconnected yesterday [Thursday] – with no notice – due to an ongoing construction project next door and Washington Gas needing to run a new service line to their property. Again – I received no formal notice of this disconnection and only realized the service had been disconnected when I woke up in the morning and the temperature had dropped to 60 degrees (these have been some of the coldest days of the year so far mind you – below freezing outside).

“Dear PoPville,

A friend of mine was walking down Sherman Ave at Euclid and was told that they could not keep walking south due to an active gas leak. They aren’t even letting crew members or folks that live on that block in. Does anyone know what’s going on or when it will be resolved? I’m not sure where to look for that info. (Side note, my building is in this photo and my dog is inside with the windows open.. should I worry??)”

Side note: Nearby DC Water reports, “Emergency shut on 8″ water main due to struck service on the 1000 Block of Girard St NW between 11th St and Sherman Ave NW. ETA 6-8 hours”

Well this is awkward.
