​RELOCATING YOUR METER OR SERVICE LINE

​RELOCATING YOUR METER OR SERVICE LINE

If you are remodeling your home or business and want your natural gas service line or meter moved, please call us at least eight to 12 weeks before the project starts. This gives us time to schedule a site visit and give you a written estimate. The relocation fee will depend on the difficulty of the installation.

Note: There is a $72 fee in Washington, D.C. and Maryland and a $78 fee in Virginia for providing the estimate to relocate the meter. The fee is in addition to the relocation fee and is charged whether or not the customer proceeds with the relocation work.

To ensure compliance with federal pipeline regulations and Washington Gas policy, we will follow up with you and inspect the completed third-party construction project that prompted the relocation of the meter or service line. In the event of non-compliance, Washington Gas will be forced to shut off the service until corrective action is taken to comply with federal and/or local pipeline regulations and Washington Gas policy.

For more details, contact us at 703-750-1000 or 800-752-7520.
