 PEOPLES AND EQUITABLE GAS PARTICIPANTS IN PROJECT U/P KEEP PROGRAM
 PITTSBURGH, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- As the cold weather of the winter months approaches, now is the time for consumers to have their home water systems inspected to make sure they are in proper working order.
 However, for some individuals, this process can be expensive. The second annual Project U/P KEEP will help these individuals in need by offering a cost-free service which includes a free inspection and service of water heaters, flue-piping, gas piping, temperature and pressure relief valves, burners, thermostats and pilots. Members of Plumbers Local Union No. 27 will furnish a new 40-gallon water heater as required at no cost to any qualified participant.
 In addition, the plumber service person will inspect all water closets and will furnish any and all working parts from the supply water line to the flush valve at no cost to the participants.
 The donated services, by members of the Pittsburgh Plumbers Local Union No. 27, will take place Saturday, Sept. 26, for as many hours as are needed to complete the task. The program is sponsored by the Pittsburgh Plumbers Local Union No. 27, managed by Andrew B. Hovanec; Mechanical Contractors Association of Western Pennsylvania; the Peoples Natural Gas Company; Equitable Gas; and the Allegheny County Department of Aging.
 Peoples and Equitable Gas will also provide energy-saving hot water wraps to participating residents.
 Individuals have been selected to receive U/P KEEP services based on the following criteria: home owner, low-income (150 percent of poverty level), older adults age 60 or more, and residents of Allegheny County.
 Approximately 60 individuals participating in the program have already been contacted by a Customer Relations representative of the U/P KEEP Program.
 U/P KEEP representatives will be wearing name tags for the purpose of proper identification.
 Peoples Gas provides gas service to more than 333,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in 16 counties throughout southwestern Pennsylvania.
