Pipeline Safety

Whether you are building an addition, laying a patio, planting a garden, or just digging a post hole for a mailbox, Don't Dig Though the Natural Gas Service Line. Should you plan to do any digging, please contact TENNESSEE ONE CALL - THE STATEWIDE NOTIFICATION SERVICE by calling 811 at least three days in advance so that all Middle Tennessee Natural Gas owned buried pipe may be located and marked for you at no charge.

All digging in the vicinity of piping should be carefully done by hand. This will avoid the inconvenience of disrupted service, personal injury and expensive repairs.

Violation of the "Call before you Dig" Act is a Class A misdemeanor and subject to a fine up to $2,500 and/or imprisonment for 48 hours.

If a gas main or service line is exposed during digging, call Middle Tennessee Natural Gas. Proper attention to pipe that has been exposed will prevent problems later.
