NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Representatives from the American Midstream gas pipeline will meet with Kingston residents facing loss of gas service.

The meeting, which is scheduled for Aug. 9, will be at the Kingston Schoolhouse.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2aDayRu) American Midstream is currently replacing its Midla pipeline, which runs from Monroe to Baton Rouge, with a modern, larger pipeline from Franklin Parish to Adams County.

While other customers of the pipeline who won’t be included on the new line have found other alternatives, 154 customers in Kingston - which is serviced by Mississippi River gas - are set to lose service when the line is capped at Cloverdale.

That’s in part because the line that runs from Cloverdale to Kingston is an old line that ultimately needs to be replaced for safety concerns.
