How to Determine the Best Location for Our Natural Gas Meter
Please keep these requirements in mind when determining the best location for our natural gas meter:
- Create a perpendicular, continuous straight line of sight from the meter to our gas main line facility which is typically located in or near the street right-of-way or alley.
- Locate the meter a minimum of 3 feet from any building opening, vent, electric equipment, electric panel or meter and any other possible source of ignition.
- Protect the meter from vehicular traffic with meter protection bollards.
- Ensure the natural gas meter is accessible by our service technicians or other emergency responders. Do not install the natural gas meter indoors or in confined spaces such as a crawl space, closet, vault or shaft.
