How to Care for Gas Meters This Winter

Outdoor natural gas meters and/or pressure regulator sets are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions.

However, the Waukee Gas Department offers these winter protection tips:

  • Clean and repair leaky eaves and gutters regularly to prevent ice and melting snow build-up.
  • Do not pile snow against your natural gas meter and/or pressure regulator set when shoveling or blowing snow.
  • Never allow snow to completely cover a natural gas meter and/or pressure regulator set.
  • Remove soft snow build-up gently, using only a broom or your hand.

Call 515-978-7920 if you notice a build-up of snow or ice. Do not try to remove it by kicking or hitting the meter or piping.
