SECTION 39-2.1-1

§ 39-2.1-1. Location of residential gas regulators and gas meters.

(a) Prior to the location or relocation of any residential gas regulator or gas meter, the public utility shall consult with the owner(s) of the property as to their preference concerning the most suitable location for such devices, and the public utility shall give preference to locations that are least visibly prominent.

(b) The public utility is hereby prohibited from installing gas regulators and/or gas meters on the visible front of any residential property or visible sides of the property that face a public right-of-way, unless permitted to do so by the owner or unless it is determined that there exists no prudent and feasible alternative to such location. In high-pressure systems, the gas regulator may be located in an unobtrusive exterior location that is not visible from a public right-of-way.
