Gas Meter Safety

The New Ulm Public Utilities and the Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety would like to alert all citizens of New Ulm concerning the protection of natural gas facilities from damage due to excessive accumulations of water, ice and snow.

Snow removed from driveways, sidewalks, streets, and parking lots should not be placed near a meter set, service regulator or other meter facilities. Contractors, residents and building owners should exercise caution when removing ice and snow so equipment or falling ice does not strike or damage gas meter facilities or regulators.

If you have any questions, please contact the New Ulm Public Utilities Natural Gas Department at 507-359-8289.
