It’s critical that we have unrestricted access to your meter for reading and repair purposes. We strongly recommend that you paint your meter and the associated aboveground piping along your house or building. Please do not paint over:
A: Clear plastic meter index cover
B: ID number tag
C: Regulator vent screen
Keep landscaping and large objects away from your meter
Do not place mulch, topsoil or rocks in contact with your meter. Be careful when mowing and report any damage to meter assemblies. If your meter is located where large objects such as vehicles or dumpsters could collide with it, make sure to erect an appropriate barricade. Contact us about barricade options.
Ice and snow accumulation
Remove large icicles hanging over meter assemblies and appliance vents.
Make sure whoever removes snow from your property is aware of its location.
Use a broom to clear snow from your meter assembly and vents.
If your meter gets encased in ice, please call us.
Sidewall Vents and Meters
Keep all sidewall vents and meters clear of vegetation and snow. If a vent becomes buried in snow or obstructed by a shrub, this may shut down your equipment or draw exhaust fumes into your home, which can produce high levels of carbon monoxide inside your house.
