Natural gas is delivered by an underground service line. The service line runs from the main to the meter. The Department of Utilities is responsible for maintenance, repair and location of the service line, including the regulator and meter.
The customer is responsible for the fuel line on the house side of the meter. The fuel line begins after the meter as noted on the picture.
Some fuel lines are installed underground. If an underground fuel line is not maintained, it may be subject to potential hazards of corrosion (rust) and leaks.
If the buried fuel line is metal, inspect it periodically for corrosion
