Nicor Gas will be upgrading the natural gas delivery system in the Village of River Forest. This project will include the installation of a new gas main, services, and potentially moving all inside meters to the outside of the residences. The approximately 300 residences that are to be included in this project have been notified via mail. (Please click here to view the letter that was sent)
Additionally, Nicor contracted United Meters to complete the project. They are currently in the neighborhoods walking each service to verify data (i.e. meter locations, etc...). Each United Meters employee has a Nicor contractor badge and the number (708-318-5021 ext 5021 weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) that residences can call for verification.
Due to the extensive nature of this project, Nicor Gas has established a dedicated phone line for questions. They can be contacted at 708-318-5021 ext 5021 weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. An answering machine is set up to take these calls, so please leave a message. All calls should be returned within 24 hours.
