Manager's Message

The City of Athens Utilities Gas Department began operation in 1952 on the Alabama-Tennessee Natural Gas Pipeline (now Enbridge Pipeline). We currently serve over 7,500 customers in Athens, Limestone County, Elkmont, and Ardmore Alabama and Tennessee. We operate and maintain over 400 miles of gas main.

The Gas Department is comprised of twenty employees trained and experienced in the management, instrumentation & measurement, inspection, construction, and maintenance of natural gas operations.

Natural gas is one of the safest, cleanest, and most efficient sources of energy and we encourage you to consider it for you home and business needs.
