Who is responsible for customer owned fuel lines?

Natural gas piping from the street to your gas meter is owned and maintained by GMG. ANY PIPING COMING OUT OF THE METER THAT GOES INTO YOUR HOUSE, TO A SHED OR BARN, OR OTHER LOCATIONS IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE HOMEOWNER TO INSPECT, MAINTAIN AND LOCATE. GMG does not maintain customer-owned piping, and if not properly maintained is subject to corrosion and leakage. Customer-owned piping should be periodically inspected for leaks and corrosion, and repaired if any unsafe conditions are discovered.

When excavating near buried gas piping, the piping should be located in advance, and the excavation done by hand. Gopher State One Call will only locate gas company owned piping and does NOT locate customer-owned piping. GMG can assist you with finding private locators such as plumbing or heating contractors in your area.
