Meter Safety Tips

  • Ensure there is a clear path to your natural gas meter and regulator for access by NJNG employees.
  • Never tie anything to a meter or its piping, including a dog leash, or wires commonly used by contractors (i.e., guy and ground wires).
  • Do not use sharp tools or instruments on or near the meter.
  • Use caution when mowing your lawn or operating other equipment around your meter.
  • Don’t lean ladders or metal objects against the meter. 

Winter Meter Safety Tips

  • Keep your meter, piping and vents clear and free of snow, ice, debris and other obstructions.
  • Gently remove any snow from your meter using a broom.
  • Carefully remove any ice hanging above your meter.

If you feel your natural gas meter is in an unsafe location, such as too close to a driveway or under a deck, call us at 800-221-0051 and say "meter" when prompted. An NJNG representative will then schedule an appointment to look at your meter.
