Excess Flow Valve Customer Notification
New Federal Regulation requires all natural gas utilities to notify customers regarding the availability of excess flow valves (EFV).
You may request that the City of Burlingame, gas department install an excess flow valve on the gas line to your property. EFV’s are mechanical shut-off devices that can be installed in the gas pipe running to the gas meter that feeds your property. An EFV is designed to shut off the flow of gas automatically if the service line breaks, for example, by an excavation accident. Stopping the flow of gas from a broken service line significantly reduces the risk of natural gas fire, explosion, personal injury, and/or property damage.
EFV’s are not designed to close if a leak occurs beyond the meter. EFV’s also may not close if the leak on the service line is small.
If you add additional gas appliances such as a pool heater, emergancy generator, or such the additional gas flow may cause the EFV to close.
If you notify the City of Burlingame that you want an EFV we will contact you to set up a date when we will install an EFV on your service line. The cost that will be billed to you to install an EFV will be $1000.
If it becomes necessary to maintain or replace the EFV on your service line we will maintain or replace the EFV at no charge to you.
EFV’s cannot be installed on some service lines due to high gas flow, low pressure or other factors. If you request an EFV we will inform you if your service line cannot accommodate an EFV.
For your safety always call 811 to have gas lines and other and other buried utilities marked before allowing anyone to dig in your yard
