DPU Contract

Since April 2015, Astyra has been working on the Gas Pipeline Stakeholder Survey Project for the City of Richmond’s Department of Public Utilities.

Astyra handled a portion of the last Stakeholder Survey Project that occurred in 2012, but was awarded responsibility for the entire project this year.

Astyra made over 35,000 calls to successfully complete the survey.
