Snow Or Ice? Clear Your Gas Meter

Northwest Iowa — Your gas meter. It’s probably not the first thing that comes to mind when we have ice or snow. But you shouldn’t completely ignore it either.

We talked to MidAmerican Energy Spokesperson Geoff Greenwood. He says they ask their customers to clear snow from their meters.

According to Greenwood, things have changed in the past few years in most areas MidAmerican serves. He says in most cases, company meter-readers no longer have to access each meter physically once a month, but . . .

Greenwood says if you’re feeling extra generous, you can clear a path in the snow to your meter, but their crews can handle that if they need to. Just make sure the meter is not buried in snow or ice. For more information, you can call your gas company. In MidAmerican’s territory, the number to call is (888) 427-5632.
