Clear meters safely

Heavy snow can cover your gas and electric meters. It’s important to keep them clear of snow and ice.

  • Clear snow and ice from your meters by hand or with a broom. Shovels and other tools can damage the equipment.
  • Don’t bury the meters when using a snow blower or shovel.
  • If you have natural gas appliances that vent outside of your home, keep the vent pipes clear of snow and ice.
