To ensure safe and reliable service to our customers, federal regulations require periodic inspection to equipment, including the piping and natural gas meter Summit Utilities owns.
  • Summit Utilities owns the natural gas meter and the piping that goes into the meter from the distribution main line. 
  • Customers own the piping that runs from the meter to their natural gas appliances, and it is the customer's responsibility to maintain that portion of piping.
