Texas and Me W, Mexico to ^ the Twin Cities. The pipe ranges from two inches in size to a dla* meter of 30 Northern has approximately 500 major valves alone its 3.500 miles of transmission llfles. Main line valves are often an expensive investment as in the case of the thirty inch Valves. Northern installed 24 such valves last year at a cost of over $10,000 each. Each valve weighs about 12,00(1 pounds. Northern's pipeline ,in its long trek northward crosses many rivers. Often the line is laid beneath the river .bed, just as the line supplying Algona was laid under many drainage ditches.

These. 77 "Natural gas bridges" total 33,595 feet in length. 8,000-Mile Pipeline Crosses Many Rivers There are a good many miles of natural ! gas mains in Algona, plus a good many miles more of "hook-up" lines in to residential and commercial property from the street mains, but this is dwarfed by .the gigantic natural gas transmission system of Northern Natural Ga.<r. Company of Omaha, from whom Perry Gas receives its supply. This giant system includes well over 8,000 miles of major pipeline, and the .job of keeping this artery of steel in condition throughout 'an eight state area is the work of the pipeline department. The system, which includes gathering lines, main lines and branch lines, is kept under constant supervision by pipeline men stationed in divisions along the line.
