This is usually due to a gas leak or a faulty boiler, water heater or other gas-using appliance that constitutes an immediate hazard to the building occupants or the building itself. If your building is being worked on or you are performing renovations, you could receive a stop work order until the gas company violations are corrected.

Understanding What Happens During a Gas Company Shutdown

A Gas company shutdown start with an inspection. This inspection could be due to work you are currently having performed on your building, and you need the inspector to give his approval for the current work so that you can proceed to the next phase of your renovation. It could also be due to a building resident or occupant complaint. If you are uncertain as to whether your building has a building violation, you can always check the NYC Department of Buildings website.

The inspector then completes a checklist pertaining to the type of inspection. If the inspector deems your gas lines, gas appliances or overall gas distribution system to be a hazard, he or she will immediately turn off the gas and issue a violation notice. The violation notice will list the type of violation, the date of the violation and the remediation date as well as the corrective measures that need to be taken in order to correct the issue.
