OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - The extremely cold weather this winter has put people in Olive Branch on notice that the pressure capability of the natural gas system needs improvement.

It’s been about a month since the first severe cold snap, when a smattering of homes and businesses began to experience low pressure, and less heat.

With everyone using more heat, the system was taxed. Demand was too great at some points, particularly on the edges of the system.

There also was concern about the future, as the growing community results in more homes and businesses on the gas system.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1o9Vdbf ) Mayor Scott Phillips has city workers examining the system at critical points. They are looking to increase the flow at valves to increase pressure.
