Who is responsible for gas line repairs and gas leaks?

Your local gas company is only responsible for maintaining the gas lines up to your meter. The home or property owner is responsible for maintaining all gas lines carrying natural gas from the meter to the inside of you home.

We recommend having your gas lines inspected periodically by a licensed professional to help identify and repair any corrosion and/or leaks that could cause unsafe conditions.

What are the Signs of a Gas Leak in Your Home?

Look

  • Dead or dying vegetation near gas pipelines
  • Water or dirt being blown into the air caused by gas escaping
  • A damaged connection to your gas appliances
  • Exposed gas pipe after a natural disaster such as hurricane, tornado, flood, fire, earthquakes, etc.

Smell

  • The smell of sulfur or rotten eggs in your home

Listen

  • Listen for a hissing or roaring sound coming from areas near the natural gas line

 

What to do if you Have a Gas Leak?

 

If you suspect a gas leak or smell gas in your home, it is important to:

  • Leave your home immediately and call your gas company to investigate the problem.
  • Do Not use any electrical devices such as light switches, telephone including cell phone as it could cause a spark
  • Do Not start any engines as it could cause a spark and ignite the gas leak
  • Do Not smoke, use lighters, matches, or use an open flame of any kind.
  • Do Not attempt to find or repair the gas leak yourself. Call an experienced professional to find the source of the gas leak and make the necessary repairs.

 

How to Prevent Gas Leaks

When should you repair or replace your gas line?

 

Gas lines naturally show signs of wear and corrosion over time. Noticeable fractures, twisted or dented lining as well as less gas being generated can all be signs of a leak. Regular inspections of your lines are recommended. Early detections and prevent significant damage or health problems.
