Black Hills Energy Reminds of the Dangers of

Ice and snow buildup on gas meters can quickly create a safety hazard.

It's important to gently remove snow with your hand or broom, but don't use anything metal, as striking the meter could cause serious damages.

Make sure to keep snowblowers and shovels away from gas meters and other above-ground equipment.

Remove any snow blocking the outdoor vent to your furnace and safely remove any hanging ice that could fall and damage the meter.

Make sure to contact Black Hills Energy customer service with any problems.
