 In the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission's (Commission) Order, entered July 26, 2013, at Doc. No. C-2011-2278312, the Commission, inter alia, directed Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) to file a pilot program designed to test enhanced leak detection measures. On September 19, 2013, PGW filed its Leak Detection Pilot Program (Pilot Program). Under the Pilot Program, PGW indicates that it will employ a three-fold approach as follows: (1) initiate a solicitation process to explore and identify alternative practical measures that can be implemented in PGW's service area during the 2014-2015 winter season to enhance PGW's existing leak detection programs; (2) as an interim approach, undertake additional year-round leak detection surveys on all high pressure cast iron mains in the City of Philadelphia using traditional measures; and (3) provide a written report to the Commission on or before June 1, 2015, describing the results of the solicitation process and any enhanced leak detection program that PGW implements under that process, as well as the results of the additional year-round leak detection surveys.

 The Pilot Program filing is available for inspection and copying at the Office of the Secretary between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The filing is also available on the Commission's web site at
