Brooklynites- protect your home and community - Get Your Gas Meter Inspected
New York State Governor & New York Public Service Commission recently announced a new law requiring natural gas carrier National Grid or Con Edison to inspect all gas meters and lines served by the utility for leaks and corrosion of meters and lines. New Yorkers are required to give access to the utility workers and or their subcontractors for such inspections.
Failure to provide access will results in fines and lost of service.
