"Although necessary, all of us at Southwest Gas regret the disruption caused by our mitigation work following the Feb. 9 incident. Southwest Gas crews have been on site around the clock to ensure the affected neighborhood meets the stringent safety guidelines Southwest has in place. As of today, all evacuations have been lifted, and all residents are able to return to their homes. We are especially grateful to the outstanding and professional actions of the Gilbert Fire Department. They were critical first responders and are a top notch safety partner.
