Property Owner's Responsibilities

The property owner owns and maintains the fuel lines on the "house side" or downstream of the meter, including buried fuel lines. The fuel line on the "house side" begins after the meter. If the underground fuel line is not maintained, it may be subject to potential hazards of corrosion (rust) and leaks.

  • Inspect the buried fuel line periodically for leaks. If the buried fuel line is metal, inspect it periodically for corrosion.
  • Repair any unsafe condition.

If the underground fuel line is not maintained, it may be subject to potential hazards of corrosion (rust) and leaks.

Contact a qualified plumber or heating contractor to provide location, inspection and repair services for buried lines. When excavating near a buried fuel line, locate the line in advance and excavate by hand. Digger's Hotline 811 does not locate buried fuel lines after the meter.

Hastings Utilities' Responsibilities

A gas service line runs from the main in the terrace to the meter. We are responsible for the maintenance of the main, service line, regulator, and meter.  When excavating near a buried fuel line, call 811- Digger's Hotline, and the service line and main will be located at no charge.
