Citizens Gas Utility District is headquartered in Helenwood, Tenn., and provides natural gas to residents and businesses in Tennessee’s Scott and Morgan counties. Established in 1958, Citizens Gas today serves almost 10,000 customers in over 1,000 square miles.
Our system consists of more than 200 miles of 6-in. or 8-in. mains, with an additional 600 miles of 3/4-in. to 6-in. distribution lines. We have 6-in. and 8-in. mains into every industrial park in Scott and Morgan counties.
Citizens Gas also offers propane for customers who are located away from our distribution network or who prefer a backup fuel source. More than 700 customers are currently served by our propane service.
The utility district’s Indian Creek storage field in Morgan County is capable of holding up to 2.2 million DKT of natural gas and can distribute at a daily rate of 20,000 DKT. The storage field reduces costs to the utility district and, in turn, our customers by reducing the costs and complications of transporting natural gas through the intrastate pipeline and allowing us to purchase and store gas when the price per DKT is at its lowest. We also have access to the Lick Branch storage field, which insures an adequate supply of natural gas, and rented delivery space on the East Tennessee Natural Gas Pipeline to supplement the local gas supply during periods of extremely cold weather.
We offer a level billing plan to give our customers the piece of mind of knowing how much to budget for their gas bill each month, and an automatic draft payment program to make paying your bill easier.
