If you’re a property owner or manager, tenant and/or occupant, you’re responsible for maintaining all gas lines on your side of the meter. This “customer buried piping” includes all gas lines running from the gas meter to the appliances or equipment on your property. In some cases, the meter may be located at your property line or a distance away from your home or business.

To keep your home or business safe:

  • Monitor and properly maintain the natural gas lines you own;
  • Periodically inspect your lines for leaks and/or corrosion;
  • Repair the lines immediately if any unsafe condition is discovered.
  • Hand dig when excavating near any buried gas piping.
