EXCESS FLOW VALVE NOTICE 

Excess Flow Valves (EFV’s) are mechanical shut-off devices that can be installed in the natural  gas pipe running to the gas meter at your property (the service line). An EFV is designed to shut  off MOST of the flow of natural gas automatically if the service line breaks, for example, by an  excavation accident. Stopping the flow of gas from a broken service line significantly reduces the  risk of natural gas fire, explosion, personal injury and/or property damage.  

You may request that Austell Gas System install an excess flow valve on the service line to your  property.  

If you notify Austell Gas that you want an EFV we will contact you to discuss your specific  situation and the cost of installation and maintenance. EFV’s cannot be installed on some  service lines due to high gas flow, low pressure or other factors. If you request an EFV Austell  Gas will inform you if your service line can accommodate an EFV.
