The City of New Orleans operates gas pipelines that fuel gas turbines providing electric power to pumps for the city's water supply and pumps for the powerful city water drainage systems. These pipelines must be cleaned of contaminants that could interrupt these fuel supplies. 


First Call was retained to develop a pipeline cleaning program and to physically remove the contaminates from three (3) natural gas fuel pipelines to prevent fouling of the downstream turbines that produce electricity to operate the water pump systems. First Call provided expertise to successfully keep the power to the turbines and secured continuous water supply and drainage protection for the City.
