Keep an Eye on Your Gas Meter This Winter

​Cold weather and snow can cause dangerous problems inside Minnesota homes heated with natural gas.

This winter, check your gas meters outside your homes and other buildings to be sure they stay free of ice and snow that can block the regulator vent and cause it to malfunction.

Be gentle. Don't damage the meter. Brush the snow off; don't shovel it away from the meter.
