Customer Owned Underground Gas Lines
As your natural gas distributor, the City of Leesburg, in accordance with federal regulations, is by this notice making you aware of certain safety recommendations regarding your natural gas piping.
The City of Leesburg operates our gas system with an emphasis on safety. We are required to design, operate, and maintain our underground pipeline system in accordance with prescribed federal safety standards. We do not maintain the gas piping downstream of the gas meter. This is the responsibility of the customer who owns that piping. If the buried pipe is not properly maintained, it may be subject to leakage and/or (if the piping is metallic) corrosion.
To ensure the continued safe and reliable operation of these lines, the buried piping should be checked periodically for leaks if the piping is metallic, corrosion. You (or the building owner) are advised to contact a licensed plumber or heating contractor to assit you in locating, inspecting, and repairing your buried gas piping. If any unsafe condition is discovered, repairs should be made as soon as possible. The Yellow Pages are an excellent source for listing of licensed plumbers and heating contractors.
If we can answer any questions regarding this notice, please give us a call at 352-728-9840
