Gas Line & Gas Meter Installed

Duke Energy was on site Thursday morning and installed both the gas meter and gas line running from the street to the meter. With the main gas line located under the sidewalk on the opposite side of the road, Duke needed to bore horizontally all the way underneath the street and both sidewalks to tap the line. Fortunately, with the drilling technology Duke possess, the whole process is pretty non-invasive. Once the line reached the Starter Home 2.0 property line, the pipe was sleeved through the conduit provided by the plumbers when they set the storm and sanitary pipes a couple weeks ago, exiting at the base of the meter. I regret not being able to get some pictures and video of the equipment being used to perform this work, but here are some images of the completed work.
