Important Information About Gas Pipes
NSTAR Gas takes safety seriously and looks to ensure natural gas is delivered safely and efficiently. We make sure to properly maintain our piping and protect against corrosion.
However, at times you may find you have questions about which parts of your service are privately owned and which parts NSTAR Gas maintains. We maintain the gas pipes that run along your street and end at your gas meter. Gas pipes that run from your meter into your home or business are your responsibility.
If you have an underground pipe on your property that leads to an outdoor gas grill, gas light, pool heater or another building, a licensed plumber should inspect that pipe periodically. If underground pipes are not maintained they could corrode and leak. If you have any questions please call us at 800-592-2000.
In addition, if you or a contractor are planning to dig on your property, state law requires you notify Dig Safe at least three days prior to digging at 888-DIG-SAFE.
