Attorney General Maura Healey was in the Merrimack Valley last weekend to survey the damage from a series of gas explosions and fires.

As the ratepayer advocate for the state, her office advocates for consumers when determining the cost of electricity and natural gas.

As questions linger about who will shoulder the cost of 48 miles of gas pipeline, Healey said she will work to ensure customers are not burdened with higher energy bills after the catastrophe.

Columbia Gas on Thursday withdrew a $33 million rate hike that was part of an agreement reached earlier this month between the company and Healey's office. The company initially wanted to increase rates by $44.5 million.
