We understand the inconvenience this may cause, and will make necessary efforts to minimize any interruption to your gas services. In order to alleviate possible parking issues and ensure a safe working zone, we will remove snow from the street following any snow storm, etc. Depending on the existing conditions at your residence or business our work may involve moving natural gas meters outside, replacing your existing gas service line, and installing curb valves at the street.
