Important Information About Your Gas Service Beyond the Meter
Beyond the meter, the maintenance of any piping is the responsibility of the customer or property owner. Sometimes, a customer's piping may be underground. If customers do not maintain their underground gas lines, the piping may corrode and leak, causing a potential safety hazard. This gas piping should be periodically inspected for leaks, and if metal, the pipes should also be inspected for corrosion.
