Gas Safety: Slab Foundations

Recent events have brought important gas safety questions to the attention of Palo Alto residents who own homes with slab foundations. 

In some of these homes, there may be gas lines running under the slabs.  Residents should be aware that it is possible for these pipes to develop a leak.  

The City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) Department provides information and services to assist homeowners who have concerns about gas safety.
