Call Carrizo Springs City Hall
Natural Gas Distribution
The function of the Gas Distribution system is to maintain, repair and rehabilitate the city's natural gas distribution system. The system is composed of a city gate, which consists of an odorizer that odorizes the city's gas distribution system, a main gas valve to shut down the entire system in case of emergency and regulators to regulate the gas flow to the city's distribution system. The gas distribution system is composed of gas mains, services, meters, regulators and valves that provide gas flow to our residential and commercial customers. The tasks performed under the Gas Distribution Department include performing gas leak surveys, cathodic protection, atmospheric and external corrosion control surveys, repairing gas leaks on city lines, installing new gas taps, gas mains and services, completing all necessary state reports, completing all necessary Texas Railroad Commission Reports, attending natural gas-related workshops and seminars, membership in the Texas Gas Association, responding to work orders generated by the public for any concerns, membership of a one-call system, responding to locating gas lines as needed, sending out public notices related to natural gas, conducting safety meetings with employees on natural gas and membership of a drug and alcohol testing program.
The City of Carrizo Springs will provide any information needed to any party interested in the location of City gas lines before any excavation activities are done within the city limits.
