NATURAL GAS LEAK DETECTION

Foothills Natural Gas Co-op is committed to providing safe, environmentally responsible and reliable service as a natural gas distributor. We are dedicated to monitoring the condition of the distribution system, including detection, maintenance and repair of natural gas leaks, through detailed surveying documentation.  Regular inspections of the distribution system are an integral part of our operating and maintenance program and are necessary to monitor system integrity and ensure public safety.

Every year, your Co-op employs a third party to determine any leaks in our distribution system.  Low and high pressure natural gas lines are walked manually with the aid of leak detection and surveying equipment.  This type of maintenance will identify any leaks, ensure accurately surveyed asbuilt maps, identify pipeline class locations, and make certain pipelines are designed properly and cathodic protection is intact.

All third party contractors have signs on their vehicles and carry identification verifying their reason for being on your property.  If you require further information or have any concerns, please contact our office.

Foothills Natural Gas Co-op offers a $100.00 reward for any reported significant underground leaks that are confirmed by our office.
