IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING UNDERGROUND BURIED GAS LINE

 

The City of Mesa owns, operates and maintains the gas piping system up to, and including the meter found outside a home or business.  Piping from the gas meter to each gas appliance belongs to the property owner and it is their responsibility to maintain. This piping, much like the plumbing and electrical system, needs to be maintained.  This also includes the gas piping to any outdoor appliances such as barbeque grills or pool heaters.

 

In order to maintain the safest system possible and avoid any potential hazards, the City of Mesa encourages all customers to periodically inspect their piping for leaks and corrosion (rust).  If an unsafe condition is discovered and repairs are needed, customers should always call a professional for repairs. If you smell gas (rotten egg smell), hear the sound of escaping gas (hissing noise), or suspect a line break, leave the area and call 480-644-4277(GASS) or 911.

 

The City of Mesa’s highest priority is public safety.  Working together we can provide the safest and most reliable energy service for everyone.  For additional questions regarding customer piping, please visit our website at http://www.mesaaz.gov/energy or call the City of Mesa at 480-644-4552.
