Natural Gas Service Lines

TAP FEE:  $325

A $325 tap fee will be incurred on all residential natural gas service line requests. The fee covers  the following required parts of a service line: risers, excess flow valve, polyethylene gas pipe (ft) and tracer wire.

 

The installation of your natural gas service line can be accomplished in two ways:

1. OPEN CUT or TRENCH FEE: $5.48 per foot

The service line will measure from the property line to the site of the meter location.

What does trenching mean? Trenching is a construction method that involves digging a trench in the ground to install, maintain or inspect pipes conduits or cables underground. When the installation of the pipe, conduit or cable is completed, the trench is back-filled and disturbed grounds are returned to their original state, insofar as possible.

2. BORE FEE:$10.23 per foot

The service line will be measured from the property line to the site of the meter.

What does bore mean:  A bore is a horizontal hole produced underground primarily for the purpose of installing services. It is the underground tunnel in construction that's created to house cables, pipes or conduits. A bore is not created using conventional trenching. A bore is, most often, created by a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) rig, a boring machine, or a micro tunneling boring machine.
