Gas Meter Location Standards

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 personnel. Do not install the natural gas meter indoors or in confined spaces such as a crawl space, closet, vault or shaft.
