Help us keep our natural gas pipelines safe with proper precaution and maintenance.
Call 811 Before You Dig
If you plan to plant a tree, install a fence, put in a pool, or plan any other outdoor improvements you must call 811 at least two days prior to excavation activities. It’s the law!
Why? Various utility lines are buried underground and there are serious consequences if you mistakenly hit, scrape, or otherwise damage them.
After you call, a representative will survey the area and clearly mark out any underground lines at no charge to you. Do not begin any work until you’ve called and always respect the mark outs placed on your site. And if you see someone working in the street or a yard without mark out, always ask if they made a call to 811 first. Help us keep your home, family, and community safe!
Inspect Your Pipes Regularly
It is your responsibility to maintain and let us know about any gas lines that begin at the outlet of the gas meter and extend either above or below ground on your property. Buried gas lines need special attention because they can corrode or leak if not properly maintained. We recommend you periodically hire a professional plumbing/heating contractor or leak survey and corrosion expert. If unsafe conditions are found, you should have the pipeline repaired immediately.
