WATERLOO, Iowa (KCRG) - MidAmerican Energy says it will conduct a controlled natural gas flare Tuesday morning.

In a press release, MidAmerican said crews will deactivate and purge a 16-inch wide gas main near East 11th Street and Sycamore Street at about mid-morning, after 9:30 a.m.

The company said the hourlong operation will result in a large, controlled and sustained venting pipe flame.

City officials and public safety departments are aware of the planned flaring.

One lane will be closed, but East 11th Street will stay open.
