Vermont Gas

Ice or snow accumulation can interfere with the proper operation of your meter. The regulator on your gas meter needs to be able to release gas in case of a malfunction. Snow removal activities can also pose a hazard to your meter assembly or piping, and result in a dangerous leak. Follow these guidelines during winter:
  • Remove large icicles hanging over meter assemblies and appliance vents.

  • If your gas meter is near a sidewalk or driveway, make sure whoever removes snow from your property is aware of its location.

  • Use a broom – not a shovel – to clear snow from your meter assembly and vents.

  • If your meter gets encased in ice, please call Vermont Gas immediately.
