Natural gas utilities across the country have discovered locations where natural gas pipes were inadvertently installed through sewer pipes. This doesn’t create a safety hazard so long as the natural gas pipe is undamaged. However, damage to natural gas pipes can occur when equipment is used to unclog sewer pipes. This can lead to a natural gas leak that could result in a fire or explosion, possibly causing injury or death to those who unclog the sewer pipes and to those in structures attached to the sewer pipe. Before you have your sewer pipe cleaned:
Call 811 Before You Clear
Know what's inside, call 811 and follow their instructions for sewer clearing. Southwest Gas will respond promptly to mark the location of our underground pipe before you clean out the sewer pipe. There’s no charge for this service.
