Meter Safety

The natural gas meter on your property does not require maintenance by you. However, there are some safety tips you can follow to avoid damage.

Meter Safety Tips:

  • For our employees’ safety, please secure your pets away from meters. NEVER tie a pet to a meter.
  • Do not stack anything on, attach anything to, or cover a meter as this could damage the meter or piping.
  • Avoid planting trees, shrubs or bushes within three feet of a gas meter. As the bush or tree grows, the roots can damage piping or the gas meter.
  • Remove any snow or ice from the natural gas meter carefully with a broom or brush, but never kick or try to chip with a hard object.
