Will This Really Grow?

Recommended Posts

The gas company put the meter there a little low. I would guess the owner raked up the dirt for the pretty flowers.

Eventually ,the gas company may take care of that,if it is a problem.

The shutoff is still accessible so maybe they could cover the thing some more and go to an estimated bill.

I found one partially underground, like the photo, at a new condo. The local code Bubba was called in along with a gas company rep and to my surprise they made the installer elevate the meter. Not only on the one unit I called out, but on about 15 others that were also buried.

Sometimes things work like they should.

I think the gas company, once asked, will reply that the meter and the dirt have to part ways...


So here is the reply I finally got:

Dear Abe,

Thank you for your inquiry.

Per the customer's request, we would report to the location and raise the curb box so that it is accessible.

Best regards,
