UPDATE: Ramachandra, Y.S. “Ram” , Engineer for City of Huntsville, spoke with Sherri Barrett this morning and stated that the pipes are involved with replacing old gas lines with Centerpoint Energy. In fact, after the initial call from Sherri Barrett last week, the city was made aware of the pipes and discovered that Centerpoint was not working through the city in the implementation of the new gas lines. The project was put on hold for a while to allow the coordination between Centerpoint and The City of Huntsville.
Emblem Properties apologizes for the misinformation but are pleased to receive the corrected information and share it with local residents.
We are glad you asked! Sherri Barrett lives in Elkins Lake and was wondering about the pipes and contacted Elkins Lake https://www.elkinslake.net/and the City of Huntsville https://www.huntsvilletx.gov/. Elkins Lake did not have an answer for the pipes , but after speaking to city services, she was told the pipes were for re-routing the sewer lines while repairs were made to the permanent sewer pipes.
So, now your know. We are glad to answer for those “inquiring minds”.
