The Utilities Gas Meter Protection Program is a 3-year program that will install bollards at various locations throughout the City. As part of the citywide gas safety program and in compliance with the Code of Federal Regulation, CFR 49 Part 192.353, Utilities Staff has identified approximately 225 gas meters that need to be protected from potential vehicular damage. The program will install bollards at approximately 75 locations each year.
Scope of Work
Bollards are designed to protect gas meters, pipes and regulators against incidental bump damage during typical low speed vehicle movements in the driveways, alleyways or parking lots. This specification covers minimum requirements for design, material, fabrication, delivery and installation of a tubular galvanized steel pipe structure to protect gas meter assemblies.
Began January 2020 and will complete end of 2022. Currently beginning the 2nd year of the project.
