Indoor Gas Leaks: Shut Off Gas at the Service Meter

You may control an indoor gas leak by shutting off gas at an aboveground service shutoff valve before the meter, provided it is safe to do so. Follow your department’s guidelines with respect to operating valves.

After the valve has been closed, DO NOT open it under any circumstances. Only a local gas utility representative can restore gas service.

You MUST inform LG&E and KU of any valve you have closed and its precise location. This information is critical for system safety and service restoration.
