Our Standby Requirement

To ensure the integrity of our system, Southwest Gas requires that special care be taken when digging near high-pressure gas facilities or conducting any boring-related work within 5 feet of any gas facility, regardless of pipe material, size, or pressure.  

If you'll be digging within 5 feet of high-pressure facilities, or boring within 5 feet of any type of gas facility, we require a Southwest Gas representative be present during the excavation process. 

Please ensure a valid email address is provided when submitting your dig ticket. State-specific standby scheduling information will be emailed to you if your project meets our standby requirements.
