Permits for Gas Piping

Due to permit reporting requirements, starting in June 2015, permits for gas piping and related work will be issued separately from other plumbing permits.

When a contractor or homeowner needs permits for both plumbing work and gas piping work, multiple permits are required.  When making online application for permits in eTRAKiT, make sure to complete all applicable information.  If you have questions, contact our Land Use Technicians at 218-730-5240.

All persons performing gas-fitting work from the outside meter stop valve to any appliance or outlet, including all gas house piping, shall be a plumber or pipefitter licensed by the state of Minnesota working for a licensed and bonded plumbing contractor, except residential gas piping in owner-occupied units in one and two family dwellings may also be performed by an employee of a mechanical contractor bonded in accordance with Minnesota law, and a property owner may do work on their own single family, owner occupied dwelling.

For heating equipment replacements, modifications to gas piping from the existing required equipment shutoff valve within 6 feet of the appliance to the appliance are included in the HVAC (mechanical) permit required for the heating equipment replacement.  Inspection of the heating equipment replacement shall include related gas piping work between the appliance shut off valve and the appliance.
