Site Readiness Checklist

Fuel Line Stub or Gas Riser Bracket Requirement

Having a fuel line stubbed out or the installation of an approved gas riser bracket must be completed prior to NIPSCO’s installing of the gas service line. Commitment of one of these methods confirms meter location consistent with our Gas Standards. Below are a couple benefits to this new requirement:

  • Gas Riser Bracket prevents the gas riser from sinking and delaying the meter install process
  • Stubbing the Fuel Line to a location compliant with NIPSCO’s Standard prevents the need for the homeowner/contractor from incurring any costs to relocate fuel line

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!

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.
