​​Installation Requirements​

  1. ​​Gas meters and regulators must be at least 3 feet (measuring radially from the gas relief valve vent) from any source of ignition, such as switches, air conditioning units and the electric meter. You must also maintain a 3-foot distance from operating windows, doors, water spigots, landscaping, air intake vents, and any other opening to the building.
  2. The natural gas service line must be a minimum of 10 feet from a water well.
  3. Meters are installed about 10 inches above finished grade to allow slight changes in grade and landscaping around the meter, without interfering with meter mechanisms.
  4. Avoid locations subject to vehicle traffic or directly below roof valleys or water downspouts, to prevent damage.​
