Gas and Water Meters

Duluth Legislative Code Chapter 48 requires that only authorized city employees turn on the supply of gas or water.

For new one- and two-family dwellings, before a gas meter may be set and unlocked, the certificate of occupancy for the building must be approved by the Construction Services & Inspections division. During the months from October 1 through April 30 the applicant may request that a gas meter be set and service unlocked for purposes of temporarily heating the building.  If by April 30 the certificate of occupancy cannot be approved, the gas meter will be relocked.
