The y had tried to fix the part that evening. However, more and more gas leaked, so that the danger for the workers became too great and the line had to be completely disconnected from the grid, the city said. Even on Saturday evening, not all households in the network area of Stadtwerke Eutin were reconnected to the gas network.
The customers of SH Netz and ZVO are not affected.
Technicians release individual households
The technicians have now repaired the damage. Because all those affected – 5,500 households – were asked to turn off their stop cocks, the technicians now have to release them individually. To do this, they ring each household individually. As a city spokeswoman announced, this could take until Sunday morning.
The people of Eutin have to be prepared for the fact that in the course of the evening and also during the night it can happen that public utility technicians ring the bell to ensure that the heating systems are connected to the grid. Whoever is not found or does not open, receives a sticker an emergency number that can be called on Sunday.
The households then get a visit from the technician on Sunday, “explains Eutin Mayor Carsten Behnk.
Support from the fire brigade, THW and Johanniter
The fire brigade has now made a large number: a total of 250 workers from the fire brigade, THW and Johanniter are ready to help in an emergency. So far, however, everything is going according to plan and very well structured according to the city.
