Residents Survey – Natural Gas Service
Lakeshore Natural Gas Inc, with support from the Town of Marathon and Township of Terrace Bay, has asked Forum Research to conduct a survey to help evaluate the feasibility of bringing natural gas to homes and businesses similar to yours. This online survey will run until at least February 6, with the intention of gauging your interest in connecting to natural gas, should it become available in your community.
We are only able to accept one survey response from each property. Survey respondents must be 18 years or older and the person most responsible for making energy decisions for your property. Your survey responses will be held in confidence and only shared with Lakeshore Natural Gas Inc. in aggregate for reporting and decision-making purposes.
Although we thank all respondents for completing the survey, completing the survey does not guarantee that your property will be served by natural gas as part of this project. In addition, please know that completing the survey is not an application for natural gas service.
If you have any questions about the survey, please reach out to us at email@example.com
