Private Gas Lines Can Be Hazardous

Customer-owned gas lines that are located after the gas meter and are underground running to an adjoining building or to a gas grill or other gas appliance may be a hazard. These lines have a potential to corrode and result in a gas leak.

Individuals with these underground lines are responsible for maintaining them. Steel lines need to be cathodically protected to avoid corrosion. Copper and other lines may also be subject to decay. It is extremely important that, if you smell gas outdoors where these lines exist, you call Centennial Utilities to further investigate the gas smell.
