NIPSCO Service Stubs
Your service stubs appear as yellow pipe sticking out of the ground on your lot. These stubs represent the location of your service line route. During grading and excavation, please ensure the integrity of these service stubs is not compromised or destroyed. This will create delays in installing your service when you need it.
Please note: As of 2015, service stubs will no longer be installed for new developments.
Front 1/3rd Meter Location
Safety is important to us. And for this reason, NIPSCO has guidelines for your meter locations: Gas Meter Standards.
Residential electric and gas meters should both be located on the same side of the home within the front 1/3rd. Not only does this aid in meter reading, testing and service, but also helps during an emergency response in the event of a fire or some other hazardous condition.
Please follow the new guidelines for meter locations and always remember safety first!
