Excess Flow Valve Customer Notification

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

Help Keep Your Community Safe

Can you imagine a garbage-filled bonfire on your front lawn?


No s’mores and campfire songs here! Garbage and recycling trucks catch fire – and far too often! In this year alone, Waste Management has battled more than 150 truck fires company-wide.  And you may be surprised to find out the main culprit: Residents and business employees unwittingly putting highly flammable items in their trash cans.

If you put anything flammable like batteries, paint thinners, gasoline, pool chemicals, lighter fluid, or other hazardous material in your trash, you are putting yourself, your community and our drivers at serious risk.

Many people think, it’s just one little battery, what could it harm?”

Imagine everyone on your street tossed in a few batteries with the weekly trash, the neighbors behind you put in several cans of old paint and paint thinner and four blocks away a person added pool cleaner and gasoline to the mix. With our compaction system to crush trash as we move through the day, those batteries have punctured and the containers those flammable liquids were in have smashed – and all those dangerous materials are now mingling together. Whoosh, the truck goes up in flames!

No one wants to put lives or property at risk.  Let’s keep our community safe by keeping our containers free of all hazardous materials.

As a reminder, these items are NOT allowed in your waste containers:

  • Appliances
  • Aerosol cans
  • Asbestos
  • Batteries (Auto or Small Device)
  • Chemical Products (e.g., cleaners, pool chemicals)
  • Construction Debris
  • Electronics (e.g., TV, computers, radios)
  • Flammables (e.g., gasoline, lighter fluid, propane)
  • Fluorescent Lights/Tubes
  • Hazardous Waste
  • Herbicides/Pesticides
  • Liquids of any kind
  • Medical Waste
  • Needles(e.g., syringes)
  • Paint and Thinners
  • Radioactive Materials
  • Tires
  • Any Types of Oil Including Oil Rags
