New Jersey Natural Gas Completes Pressurization in Seaside Park And South Seaside Park

Residents will have access to their homes today

Residents in both South Seaside Park and Seaside Park will be able to access their homes today, now that New Jersey Natural Gas has finished pressurizing the gas lines.

"Another step closer," Berkeley Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said. "All went well. Now onto meter rebuilds, which should be done by Wednesday the latest, weather permitting."

When the meter rebuilds are completed, natural gas will be reintroduced to the meter, the mayor has said.

The gas will be shut off at the meter's shut-off valve and a tag attached to the valve.

The tag will state "Before opening this valve, you must properly test and inspect the piping beyond the valve as well as any natural gas equipment.  You may also need to have approval by your local code official.  Once inspection is complete and any and all necessary approvals are obtained, natural gas service may be safely initiated by a qualified individual, such as a licensed plumber or HVAC contractor, without contacting New Jersey Natural Gas Company."

Glad to hear the gas is coming along. Who needs to do the testing and inspection beyond the valve? Does a licensed plumber do that? In South Seaside Park, do we need to have an inspection by our code enforcement officer? Do we have electricity and water? Are the sewers okay?

The article states a licensed plumber or HVAC contractor. You may need code offical approval.

Actually, the article states that the plumber or HVAC contractor can initiated service, once the inspection is complete . Does this same person do the inspection?
