City of Martinsville issued the following announcement on Aug. 1.
Federal regulation 192.16 requires that we inform our customers to exercise caution regarding underground or buried piping. This piping may be subject to leakage or corrosion and potentially be subject to hazards if not maintained. Remember that any piping
downstream of the gas meter belongs to the customer. The customer is responsible for
maintenance and operation of this portion of the fuel line.
Buried piping should be:
1. Checked for leaks periodically
2. Inspected for corrosion
3. Repaired if unsafe condition is found
4. Located and marked if excavation is performed near gas line. This is a notice only.
If you have any questions or comments please
contact the gas department.
