Natural Gas

Annual Leak Survey

One of the Natural Gas Department's goals is to promote natural gas safety throughout our community. Gas Department employees conduct their annual leak survey of gas meters, services, and mains every summer. This survey is a requirement of Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety (MNOPS). Utilities staff may pass through your yard unannounced during this survey to test equipment.

Equipment Maintenance

Gas Department employees also routinely replace meters every fall and winter to keep our equipment updated. The Department maintains 101 miles of pipeline distributed at 80 psig and 5 psig.
