Maintain your gas lines


As part of your natural gas service, we maintain the pipelines and meter near your property. You’re responsible for maintaining all the gas lines on your side of the meter. 

Such customer-owned gas lines include all piping that goes: 

  • From the meter to the appliances on your property. 
  • From a curbside gas meter to your property (if the meter is not right beside your home or business). 
  • From your meter to underground piping to a building, pool/spa heater, barbecue, stove or other gas equipment.

Prevent unsafe conditions 

If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak, evacuate the area and call 911 or contact SDG&E at 1-800-411-7343. 

To prevent potential problems, contact a licensed professional or pipe-locating specialist to help you locate and inspect your gas lines and immediately repair any unsafe conditions, such as corrosion or leaks. Your gas line(s) may be buried underground and it's good to know exactly where they are located if maintenance or repairs are required. 

To have utility-owned gas lines marked for free, contact DigAlert at 811 or Please contact DigAlert at least two working days before digging. 

NOTE: If you own a master-metered gas line system, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires you to notify your tenants of this information. You may do so by keeping this notice posted continuously in a common area frequented by your tenants.
