FOR­TIS INC. has been ad­vised that as of early to­day, gas is now flow­ing in En­bridge’s 30-inch nat­u­ral gas line. This line was shut­down as a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure fol­low­ing the Oct. 9, 2018, in­ci­dent on En­bridge’s 36-inch gas line near Prince Ge­orge, B.C. This means more nat­u­ral gas sup­ply will grad­u­ally start to flow into the gas sys­tems of the Bri­tish C o lumbia util­ity, For­tisBC. Gas sup­ply will con­tinue to be con­strained un­til the 36-inch gas line is re­paired. As a re­sult, For­tisBC is ask­ing cus­tomers to avoid non-es­sen­tial use of gas un­til the sit­u­a­tion is com­pletely re­solved. Cus­tomers can con­tinue to ac­cess in­for­ma­tion on the For­tisBC web­site. Both For­tis and For­tisBC thank cus­tomers for their con­ser­va­tion ef­forts and sup­port dur­ing this time.
