Duke Energy Gas Inspections
Between February 23rd and February 27th, Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. will be performing inspections on gas metering equipment and piping located inside buildings in the Fort Wright area. These inspections are required by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and are necessary for safe natural gas pipline operations.
The inspection involves the gas piping from the building wall to the outlet of the gas meter. The work to be performed will include an inspection of the exposed gas piping and metering equipment for leakage and corrosion. On average, each inspection should take approximately ten minutes to complete.
Duke has contracted with Southern Cross Inc. to complete these inspections at residences and businesses with inside gas meters. The Southern Cross Inc. technician will be readily identifiable by:
- Wearing a visible Southern Cross Inc. picture ID on the outside of the uniform,
- Wearing a visible Duke Energy picture ID on the outside of the uniform,
- Having a contact phone number for the customer to call for verification of the Duke Energy Kentucky inspection, and
- Driving a Southern Cross Inc. or personal vehicle with a Southern Cross Inc. logo (you should NOT expect to see the technician in a Duke Energy vehicle).
