Gas Service Line Inspections
New York State law requires that Orange & Rockland perform an inspection of your gas service line. This inspection is required once every three years for customers in residential districts, and annually for customers in business districts.
Customers will receive a letter in advance from one of our qualified contractors who will be performing inspections in their area. Customers who do not schedule an appointment should expect an unscheduled visit from one of our qualified contractors to attempt to inspect their equipment.
If one of our qualified contractors is unable to perform the inspection, a technician will leave a drop card behind asking the customer to schedule an appointment.
Yes. This inspection is required by New York State law, so it’s important that you help us complete this work.
To inspect all gas service lines properly, we may need access to your home or building. We will make multiple attempts to perform the inspection. If O&R qualified contractors are unable to perform the inspection, a technician will leave a drop card behind asking the customer to schedule an appointment.
Since this inspection work is required by law, if we are unable to gain access, a no-access $100 fine will be charged to your account. This fee may be assessed each month that we are unable to access your gas meter.
