Indoor Gas Leaks: Turn Off Gas at the Service Meter

You may control a gas leak that originates from indoor gas equipment, appliances or piping by turning off the gas at the aboveground service shutoff valve before the meter. (Be aware that this will not control a gas leak that has migrated into a structure from elsewhere.) Follow your department’s guidelines with respect to operating gas service meter shutoff valves.

After the service valve has been closed, DO NOT open it under any circumstances. Only a local gas utility representative can restore gas service.

You MUST inform Peoples of any valve you have closed and its precise location. This information is critical for system safety and service restoration.
